After tying up a therapist, Soonam tells her that she's always tried to do the right thing but has always ended up a victim. A poor woman struggling to pay the hospital bills for her vegetative husband's care, her hard work seems to be hopeless. In a moment's good luck she is granted the chance for a turnabout when a redevelopment project takes place, but unfortunately that falls through.
Facing constant failure and stress, Soo-nam discards her honesty and adapts a cold-blooded approach to take revenge on whoever is responsible for her debt-ridden life.
