The escaped inmate of a South Korean mental asylum styles himself as Jesus Christ and makes his way to Seoul, picking up a homeless child as his assistant along the way. He is on the lookout for his Mary Magdale, and believes he has found one in the person of the mistress of a wealthy man who is understandably annoyed at his persistence and his appeals to her conscience. Her response to his importunities are appealingly tart, and the situation serves to remind viewers about what would be the likely result if the madman actually was Jesus.
