One night, Gang Doo walks down the road with his ailing leg. He gets beaten near to death by a group of men and is cast aside in a deserted back alley. He struggles to get up, but tono avail. Just before he succumbs to darkness, a woman Moon Soo reaches out to him. He regains consciousness only after three whole days with the woman long gone by then.
Gang Doo hears the news that a construction project is due to kick-off at the accident site. As though bewitched, he finds himself visiting the place and getting hired.

Life seems to take a turn for the good, but Gang Doo finds out that the chief of the construction site, Joo Won Seo, is the son of the person responsible for the past accident. In addition, as much as he would like to ignore it, Gang Doo becomes aware that Moon Soo held romantic intentions towards Joo Won.
