In 1930s Korea, a pickpocket named Sookee (Kim Tae-ri) is hired by a swindler posing as a Japanese Count (Ha Jung-woo). He wants her to help him seduce an heiress to elope with him, rob her of her fortune, and lock her up in a madhouse. Sookee agrees, and begins to work as a handmaiden to Japanese heiress Hideko (Kim Min-hee), who lives a secluded life with her domineering uncle Kouzuki (Cho Jin-woong). The plan seems to be going well — until Sookee begins to falls for the vulnerable heiress.
