Based on North Korean reality, "The Gift of Love" is the dramatization of an event that took place in the province of North Hwanghae.

Lee Sojung is the wife of an invalid war hero who alone struggles to support his family. Forced to sell her body Sojung has a great sense of guilt and sadness, and when even prostitution, the last chance to support her husband Kangho's care and keep her child, falls because of the regime's repression, the situation will become unsustainable. While the lies continue, Kangho's suspicions continue to grow, until Sojung tells of meeting Kim Jong Un and having received "love gifts" from the Dear Leader, a lie that will make the family spend a joyful and happy evening with tragic implications.
