RYU Mok-hyeong, a member of a small prayer house located in a remote mountain village, is well-respected for his leadership and gift of speech. In order to build a new prayer house Mok- hyeong leaves the mountains to build a new village with the help of his friend, Yong-duk. Many years pass and Mok-hyeong is discovered dead after sharing a bottle of rice wine with Yong-duk. Mok-hyeong’s good for nothing son, RYU Hae-guk, arrives from Seoul to attend his father’s funeral. Hae-guk soon realizes that the villagers are trying to hide something from him leading him to seek the help of PARK Min-uk, the public prosecutor responsible for his demotion to a local branch during his more reckless past. Hae-guk plans to conduct his father’s autopsy himself, but arrives at his father’s grave only to find his corpse missing. Hae-guk suspects that Yong-duk is responsible.
While sick and tired of living in the city, Hae-guk hears that his father, Yoo Mok-hyung, whom he hadn't spoken to for over 20 years, had passed away. But when he goes to the village where his father had lived, the villagers strangely keep their guard up and seem quite uncomfortable around him. Hae-guk is invited to dinner by some villagers after his father's funeral. It seems the people are set on rushing him out of their village. Regardless, Hae-guk announces he won't be leaving for Seoul, but stay in the village. The people exchange mysterious looks. Then, the Chief accepts and tells Hae-guk to settle down in the village. On Chief Chun Yong-duk's orders, the villagers suddenly start acting differently around Hae-guk. The Chief looks like a normal elderly man at a glance, but he is frighteningly charismatic, seems all knowing, and the village people appear to be following him like a god. Meanwhile, Hae-guk gets all the more suspicious of everyone in the village...
