Set during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the 1930s, a young handmaiden named Sookee is hired by Hideko, a reclusive heiress who lives in a sprawling mansion. But Sookee harbours a secret: she has been recruited by Fujiwara, a scheming con artist posing as a Japanese Count, to trick Hideko into entrusting him with her fortune. However, when Sookee and Hideko begin to develop unexpected feelings for each other, they start putting together a plan of their own.
