The plotline of the musical develops itself around a hanging garden in order to expose and bring to light prevalent human desires. A real estate tycoon by the name of Wang mysteriously disappears, his body parts found beside a bank machine, while his wife offers the reward of a magnificent garden in exchange for valuable clues that might help solve the case.
A father whose criminal record has torn apart his family, a doctor in love with his patient, and a man with brain tumor all report themselves as the murderous perpetrator in an effort to acquire the garden so that their loved ones may live a happy life.
But when the true killer emerges, the characters come to realize that the worst was not yet behind them.
The musical features original music - from heavy metal at the beginning to lighter music at the end - with each song pushing the plot to new heights.
