In-hi, a 28 year-old woman experienced paralysis in her upper body for no reason. Moreover accidents happened to her family incessantly. She regarded this as some kind of curse and visited Hae-kyung, the female shaman. In-hi found out that she is destined to be a shaman and fell into dilemma. Korean Shamans are the intermediaries between the living world and the spiritual world. They sometimes play a role as an advisor of life, sometimes as the cursed messenger of evil gods. They are a group of people who are usually despised by others, but they have been around for more than 5000 years, carrying the burden of the gift that god has bestowed upon them.
