Hanjo, the woman depicted here, is a prostitute who found love with a passing traveller. She loses her mind and begins to roam aimlessly. Fortunately, she is – by chance – reunited with her lover. Accordingly, the themes addressed in this play are grief, loneliness, a pure heart, and the joy of reunion.
