When they are old enough, they begin working with their village's all-female diving collective. Despite their love for each other, Mi-ja and Young-sook's differences are impossible to ignore. Little do the two friends know that after surviving hundreds of dives and developing the closest of bonds, forces outside their control will push their friendship to the breaking point.”

Books are available for request via the library catalog.
