An animal groomer inherits an orphaned cat whose owner died unexpectedly, and races to solve the supernatural mystery of a young girl whose appearance foretells death. Generously offering to take care of the Persian cat until she can find it a new home, claustrophobic pet store employee So-yeon begins to regret her decision to do so after a frightening little girl with feline eyes begins haunting her day and night. Though Se-yeon's friends are quick to dismiss her fears as paranoia, the situation turns terrifying after the spectral girl appears at the scene of a gruesome death. Meanwhile, all of Se-yeon's friends begin dying under bizarre circumstances. Convinced that she can save them if she just gets rid of the cat, Se-yeon tries repeatedly to get rid of it. But the nightmare isn't over yet; when the cat keeps returning to the terrified Se-yeon, she enlists the aid of a policeman who dated her late friend to solve the terrifying mystery. As the duo begins to investigate, mounting evidence indicates that a tragedy from the distant past may hold the answers to the horrors of the present.
