This is the story of Kyung-un, a strong-plucky fourteen-yr old, and her "never really grown up" uncle.  At her father's funeral, Kyung-an meets her uncle Jae-min the first time.  Jae-min, a sweet-talker living off old ladies' money, manages to con his niece out of her father's insurance money.  In order to get her money back, Kyung-un agrees to play Jae-min's daughter  so he can earn the trust of his next victim, a lonely pharmacist named Jum-hee.  As the scheme thickens, the relationships among these three characters changes in unexpected ways.
