The story begins from a poor village in the foothills of Jinyi, South Gyeongsang Province (Gyeongsangnam), where most people earn from hunting. The tiger is the main target of hunters, because it can generate a lot of money. Chun Man-duk is a hunter's most powerful and respected in the village, played by Choi Min-shik. He only stayed with the boy mere puppet named Suk Yi, while his wife, had a few years ago, was killed when he was attacked by the tiger in the forest. But since the last tiger poaching, Chun Man Duk no longer interested in hunting tigers. An action that is strange, considering the tiger could make a lot of money and even his beloved wife is the victim of the ferocity of the tiger.
