Sung-ryeol is a detective in charge of violent crimes. He is an upright man, but is having an affair with his colleague's wife, and it is the reason he loses his own daughter in a car accident. Wracked with guilt but unable to explain to his wife, Ji-yeon, what happened on that day and why, he loses her in her grief. Ji-yeon comes home shaken and bloody late one evening, peaking Sung-ryeol's curiosity about his wife's behavior.
