A wingless fairy awaits the reincarnation of her former husband to try to locate her lost wings and return to heaven.
Sun Ok Nam is a fairy who came down to Earth to take a bath during the Joseon Dynasty. A woodcutter steals her clothes, and she is unable to return to heaven. She decides to marry the woodcutter and has two children with him. But before she can find out where he hid her clothes, the woodcutter dies in an accident.

When two men, Jung Ji Hyun (Yoon Hyun Min) and Kim Geum (Seo Ji Hoon), come into the café one day, Ok Nam is convinced that one of them is her reincarnated husband. Can Ok Nam finally find her lost clothes and return to heaven?
