After being institutionalized in a mental hospital, Korean teen Su-mi (Su-jeong Lim) reunites with her beloved sister, Su-yeon (Mun Geun-yeong), and they return to live at their country home. The girls' widower father (Kap-su Kim) has remarried, and the siblings are immediately resentful of his new wife, Eun-joo (Yeom Jeong-ah). As Su-mi and Su-yeon try to resume their regular lives, strange events plague the house, leading to surprising revelations and a shocking conclusion.
