Angels of death arrive in the mortal world with a mission to escort an old lady to her final resting place. They are off to find the old lady Hwang, in the guise of human beings, dogs and flies. One of them appears in the dream of Hwang as her late husband and gives a sign of her upcoming death. After the dream, the old lady Hwang asks a shaman to perform KUT, the ritual services, so that her spirit can be sent to heaven after her death..
KUT has been banned in the village for years, since a daughter of the shaman got pregnant without marrying and was kicked out by villagers. Now the daughter, Mi-yeon, manages her life running a small bar in town living with her fatherless son, but returns to the village in years when the lady persuades the shaman into performing KUT. The shamanistic rite is in full blast and the villagers gather to watch and enjoy themselves. In the midst of it, all the hidden truth is revealed; Mi-yeon was raped and pregnant by some of the villagers, who expelled her charging her unmarried pregnancy; Yong-taek, the old lady's son killed himself by feeling guilty of not protecting his lover Mi-yeon.
Through the KUT, however, their old grief, hatred and resentment are washed away. After the ritual, old lady dies peacefully. The angel, who returned to this world in the guise of Yong-taek under orders of King Ogu(i.e. King of heaven), feels compassion for Mi-yeon and wonders if he really was Yong-taek in his mortal life. Slowly he finds himself wanting to stay in the earthly world of human beings.s.
