A body is found in the lake which had melted to the bones. This was already the fourth body. The only way to identify the bodies is through face reconstruction, which is reconstructing the face by through analogy based on the shape of the skull. But Hyeon-min, who is a face reconstruction specialist at the National Institute of Scientific Investigation forensics department, resigns leaving this important case behind. To him, saving his sick daughter who was getting worse was more important than his job. Seon-yeong, who works at the legal anthropology department, takes the skull with her to see Hyeon-min, asking him to work on its reconstruction. Despite Hyeon-min’s refusal, she leaves the skull and disappears. Since the skull had been brought to him, Hyeon-min has nightmares and hears strange sounds. Meanwhile, investigators learn that the victims had beta allergy, and that they were probably murdered in relation to heart transplants. Hyeon-min senses that the serial killings and his daughter’s heart transplant are connected, and to escape from the curse, he starts working on the skull’s reconstruction. He makes progress with the help of Seon-yeong, who understands his pain. But as the victim is identified, Hyeon-min falls deeper into the fearful curse and hallucinations.
