A man is murdered shortly after his release from prison. Detective Han Dong-Su (Han Suk-Kyu) investigates the case, which leads him back to a homicide case that occurred 14 years ago. An unsolved case that eats the soul of Detective Han Dong-Su to this day.

Meanwhile, Mi-Ho (Son Ye-Jin) is set to marry the chief executive of a large corporation. An assistant (Lee Min-Jung) to the executive chief is asked to do a background check on Mi-Ho. She discovers that Mi-Ho's mother was the primary suspect in an unsolved murder case 14 years ago. The assistant also notices another man, Yo-Han (Ko Soo), who always seems to linger by Mi-Ho's side.

Detective Han Dong-Su is convinced that Yo-Han, the victim's son from the 14 year old murder case, is somehow involved in the recent murder. Detective Han Dong-Su then discovers a hidden relationship between Yo-Han and Mi-Ho. As more crimes occur, Detective Detective Han Dong-Su works frantically to uncover the truth ...
