Synopsis

     Slum dwellers living around Yongsan Station make a living by breaking into the station yard and stealing coal from the stockpiles there.  When the city extends the station, the slums are bulldozed.  At first, the slum residents resist.  But gradually they come to realize that their way of life is not viable, and one by one, they move on.
