After surviving the crash, Robert tries to find his way back to his force, but the harsh elements are almost stronger than his will to survive: he finds himself snow-blind and finally falls in a faint in the blizzard. Robert follows the footprint of people and arrives at the tribe. Fair-haired Robert is regarded as a "monster" by the tribe. People think that the arrival of a stranger is considered another bad omen, so Yongcho, the "cursed woman", is charged with the ... Written by Anonymous
