In Seoul, Park Hee-bong runs a small snack bar on the Han River where he lives with his family: his eldest son, the immature Gang-du, his daughter Nam-joo, an unlucky archery champion and Nam-il, his eternally unemployed younger. All idolize the little Hyun-seo, Gang-du’s only daughter.
One day, a giant monster, unknown until now, appeared from the depths of the river. When the creature reaches the banks, it begins to trample and attack the crowd savagely, destroying everything in its path. When the snack bar was demolished, Gang-du tried to escape with his daughter, but he lost her in the panicked crowd. When he finally sees her, Hyun-seo is being kidnapped by the monster that disappears, taking the girl to the bottom of the river.
Without any help, the Park family decided to go on a crusade against the monster, to find Hyun-seo…
