It spotlights Han So-yeon (Ko Sung-Hee), a 30-year-old businesswoman, who has always kept her distance from people and embraced a solitary life due to her face blindness disorder. But when the loneliness closes in on her, she volunteers to become a Beta tester for a new and bizarre invention – an AI holographic companion.

The invention is a pair of glasses, which upon wearing provides the user with a personal hologram helper or companion. Nicknamed Holo, the hologram helper resembles its inventor, Ko Nan-Do (Yoon Hyun-min).
