A strange series of murders begin to take place in Korea. There seems to be no connection between the victims, only a small sticker depicting a character from the popular "Princess Aurora" cartoon series is found at every crime scene.
Detective Oh Sung-ho (Moon Sung-keun), who is studying to become a priest, and his partner (Kwon Oh-joong) are working on the serial murder case, with little progress. Sung-ho begins to suspect that his ex-wife Jung Soon-jung (Uhm Jung-hwa) might be behind the murders. Uncertain of his suspicions, Sung-ho withholds information, and instead of confirming Soon-jung's guilt or innocence, gets caught up emotionally and spends a romantic night with her. The killings continue, with Soon-jung out to punish everyone whom she believes played a role in her young child's death. Soon-jung eventually allows herself to be captured, in order to complete the final act of her revenge.
Though it was released with far less fanfare, its violent theme earned it comparison to Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, released the same year.
