Kim Shin lives an ordinary, content life. However, his world crashes down as he loses money, family, and love in a moment when he is jailed for attempted murder. While in prison, he resolves to fight the world that is controlled by money.
Chae Do Woo is a wealthy genius who concentrates on making money not out of greed, but from being bored and sick of the world. In public, he is a charming gentleman; in private, he is a cold-hearted and cruel. He has no standards of good and evil for himself.
Seo Gyeong Ah was Kim Shin’s girlfriend from college who crosses over into the world of men. She adds to the conflict between Kim Shin and Chae Do Woo.
