By chance is approached in the street by Ho Hsin-yu, the wife of a wealthy businessman, Hu Ting-han. Hsin-yu invites Kuo Yin to stay at their home and guide her and her husband in their prayers for the soul of their son, died in a car accident. Gradually even Hu Ting-han starts to be won over, and Kuo Yin also starts to believe he is genuinely helping the family come to terms with their grief. But one day someone from his past knocks on the door.
