A young man with a third eye can see and communicate with otherworldly beings. When he encounters the ferryman, he begins to use his abilities to help lost souls crossover.

Xia Dongqing's (Liu Zhiyang) extraordinary abilities have always brought him more trouble than he can cope with. One day, he gets a job taking the night shift at a 24-hour convenience store. The store serves as a station for souls and Zhao Li (Yu Yi) is a lonesome ferryman who has been watching over the station for five hundred years.
