At the age of 28, Jeong Jin (Nam Ji Hyun) had everything in life that a person could ever want or need. With a great job and a fantastic boyfriend, Jin was convinced her life was as close to perfect as anyone could ever wish. Little did she know, her perfect world was about to come crashing down around her.
Stricken by a string of bad luck, Jin now finds herself without a job, a boyfriend, or a clue as to what to do next.

But after an unexpected encounter with Jo Hee Ra (Song Ji Hyo), a sorceress who specializes in granting wishes, things take an unexpected turn for the better.
Wishing to borrow Jin’s restaurant to run a restaurant of her own, Jin agrees to the mysterious woman’s request. Soon the place is full of people willing to sell their soul for a taste of Hee Ra’s magical wish-granting dishes. Though thrilled by their success, Jin sometimes wonders if the price of Hee Ra’s dishes isn’t just a little high…
