Ji-so is a 10-year old living with her mom and a little brother, Ji-suk, in a pizza truck. With her dad out of contact after their pizza truck business went bankrupt and her mom lacking a sense of reality, Ji-so and her friend, Chae-rang, decide to get a house on their own. They naively believe five thousand dollars can buy a house and Ji-so finds a missing dog poster with a five thousand dollar reward. Now, their scheme is to find a rich dog, steal it and then return it back to its owner by pretending to have found it. Ji-so’s gang spots Wolly, the dog of an old rich lady who owns the restaurant where Ji-so’s mom works and sets out a perfect plan to steal the dog. They also make friends with a kindhearted wanderer who is camped out at the abandoned house where they’re keeping the dog. He shares his wisdom and offers help to the kids. Meanwhile, somebody else eyes on Wolly, the old lady’s nephew, Soo-young, who is after his aunt’s inheritance. But every perfect plan, no matter how well executed, is bound to run into some unexpected mishaps along the way. Will Ji-so, Chae-rang, and unexpectedly smart Ji-suk succeed in carrying out sneaky dog-stealing plot?

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
