This heartwarming story of selfishness, loss, grief and redemption follows two children, Su-min and Dong-min, who sell their grandmother's shoes in exchange for a puppy. As they realize their fault and search for their grandmother's shoes, they accidentally end up going to the underworld where they encounter a mischievous band of living Kokdu, the wooden figurines that guide the souls of the dead to the afterlife.
