So-ah (Shin Se-Kyung), a neuropsychiatrist and the last surviving member of a middle-class family doomed to serve Lord Ha-baek (Nam Joo-hyuk) for generations, is called upon by the god of the Land of Water when he comes to Earth to retrieve the sacred stones necessary for him to gain the throne of the Divine Realm.
