Cho loses her husband, Ying, to a massive typhoon that has left their village in ruins. The grief-stricken widow is also faced with the prospect of losing the family business, the Boar Hot Spring -- the source of water for the hotel spas in the village -- which has been buried by a landslide. As her fellow villagers desperately try to sell off their land and move out, they receive invitation cards from the deceased Ying. Is Ying really dead? What secrets is he hiding? Can they find another path and re-establish links with the buried hot spring, the lifeblood of the village?
