Shin Tae-hwan is the son-in-law of the founder of Taeseong Group, a giant chaebol in Korea, and when the well-educated miner Lee Ki-chul gets in his way by forming a labor union, he decides to have him killed by staging a mining accident. Shin Tae-hwan has an affair with Nurse Mi-ae of Taebaek Hospital and she ends up getting pregnant. When she refuses to get an abortion, he sends his men to kidnap her and force her to get an abortion while she is sedated. He promptly dumps her.
Choon-hee, Lee Ki-chul's wife, gives birth just days before her husband will meet his cruel death. On the same day she gives birth, Oh Yoon-hee, Shin Tae-hwan's wife, also gives birth to a son at the same hospital. Burning with a desire to get revenge on Shin Tae-hwan, Nurse Mi-ae switches Shin Tae-hwan's and Lee Ki-chul's babies.
