He especially considers his elder brother, HanByul, who often complains of being sick, his greatest target.

The film centers on nine-year old Han Yi who takes sibling rivalry to a new extreme by picking on his timid older brother Han Byeol. But things change dramatically when the twelve year old boy is diagnosed with a brain tumor, has to receive brain surgery, and finds himself stuck in a pediatric ward. Suddenly, the family is turned upside down, with Han Yi's parents worried about mounting doctor bills, their future, and the alarming fact that Han Byeol may not survive this ordeal. Soon Han Yi finds himself alternatively ignored or scolded by his parents, and begins to feel jealous that his brother is bonding with Wook Yi, a fellow patient at the hospital. Through these trying times, little Han Yi begins to learn the value of family and true brotherly love!
