In the poor district of town, there lived a woman known as the Black Glove. Taking her young son, she remarries a man named Tae-seop whom nobody knows anything about. Tae-seop has an enormous secret. He relies on the Black Glove to support him. One day, Joo-seok, her ex-husband shows up. He's been released from jail and is now a cabbie. The almost ruined Kil-ja yearns for the neighborhood minister, Gong. The Black Glove decides to give up her ex-husband and her son. An innocent widow who has lost her husband shows up and reveals Tae-seop's secret. Tae-seop had committed murder but the stature of limitations is almost over on the crime. Tae-seop changes due to the widow's compassion. The Black Glove and her son leave the district.
