Different desires of these lowlifes slowly gather around the money bag.

The destinies of hard-luck lowlifes slowly converge and come crashing down: Jung Man barely gets by working at a sauna and taking care of his sick mother until he finds a bag full of cash in the locker room; Tae Young is in trouble after his girlfriend runs away with the money he borrowed from a loan shark. Soon, a deadbody mysteriously turns up; Mi Ran, caught between her husband’s harsh and a dead-end job as a bar hostess, she finds a young lover Jin Tae, who offers to terminate her husband… And now their dog-eat-dog game starts.
