After the father's dismissal from his company, a family decides to open a mountain lodge in the suburbs of Seoul. Although they initially expect a rush of lodgers, the mansion is empty for days.

However, the guest is found dead the next day, and the family buries him in a panic to avoid any risk of ruining their business. The next guests are a couple who commit a double suicide and consequently, the family buries them again.

To make things worse, the family becomes involved in a conspiracy plotted by the head of the village.
