Su Mi and Su Yeon return home after a long time in hospital but everything has changed since their mother passed away. Their return is welcomed by Eun Joo, their stepmother. Su Mi is the older of the two, not afraid to speak what she thinks when trouble comes. Su Yeon is timider and wary of their stepmother and finds Su Mi for help. Continuously, picked on and harassed by their stepmother, the two have no choice but to endure the relationship for their father's sake. Su Mi promises Su Yeon that she will never let her stepmother beat them again. Inexplicable things start happening at the house. Something has changed, no one knows what it is, but you can feel it. On her first night back, Su Yeon heard someone running up the stairs, opening the door, and getting into bed. As soon as she pulled the covers over her head, they were pulled out immediately, but no one was around. Maybe their stepmother is trying to torture them? Or could it be that there is something more sinister at work, a supernatural force in the homes that want to keep everyone away?
