The humans then start exhibiting bizarre behaviours, forming a community of these infected humans, and creating havoc on the non-infected humans. Jeong Su-in (So-nee) is a victim of the parasitic attack but the alien creature fails to completely own her. This forces So-nee to co-exist with the parasite. The government forms a team of cops to tackle the menace and enlist So-nee’s help due to her special condition.
