So-yeun is an animal groomer who works in a pet shop. One day she gets stuck with a Persian cat named Silky when its owner suddenly dies. From then on, So-yeun is constantly haunted by a bobbed hair girl with green cat-like eyes who turns her life into turmoil.

Not only that, people around So-yeun get killed one by one. Soon So-yeun comes face to face with the bobbed hair girl at the scene of an horrific death. So-yeun gets rid of Silky, hoping her troubles will come to an end, but Silky keeps coming back to her like a boomerang. Terrified she could be the next to die, So-yeun sets out to find out the identity of the girl with the help of her dead friend’s ex-boyfriend, Jun-seok, who is a cop. Later So-yeun finds out the truth to the tragic incident that took place in the past.
