      Police Officer Yeon-su is dispatched to an island with her daughter after her divorce. On the night of her welcoming party, Yeon-su witnesses the strange relationship between orphan girl Yae-eun and the island workers. Yae-eun has been taken care of the village people after she lost her parents in the sea when she was young. Yeon-su suspects her of prostitution. When Yeon-su starts to investigate the case, the village foreman tries to send Yae-eun out of the island to settle the issue rapidly. However Yae-eun, who is scared of being in the sea because of her past trauma, desperately runs away and hides in the mountain.
