A Smile opens with a close-up of a woman's eye subject to an ocular test. It belongs to So-jeong (Choo Sang-mi, The Contact, Turning Gate), a photographer. It is revealed that she is afflicted with retinitis pigmentosa, a rare disease that kills optic nerves from the periphery, eventually leading to blindness. Her graduate student boyfriend Ji-seok (Song Il-gon) is supportive, but she abruptly terminates the relationship with him. She returns to her family for a funeral service, and briefly dabbles in a project photographing the famous statue of the Maitreyan Boddhisatva and explores the ancient tombs of Kyungju. In the end, she abandons photography and decides to take lessons for flying mini-planes from a loner ex-Air Force soldier (Jo Seong-ha).
