Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The 1964 South Korean war adventure Red Scarf gets a slick modern makeover in this tale of a disgraced pilot who must team up with his rival to prevent a war with North Korea. Tae-hun (Jung Ji-hoon) is an Air Force pilot who gets kicked off of the elite Black Eagle flying squad after pulling a dangerous stunt at an air show. Subsequently demoted to combat duty, he makes a big wave with his new crew, quickly entering into a heated romance with top technician Se-yeong. But the squad's current top gun Cheol-hui (Yu Jun-sang) doesn't care to see his position challenged, and takes exception to Tae-hun's hot shot attitude. The two talented pilots are forced to put their differences aside and work toward a common goal, however, when a North Korean MIG fighter enters into South Korean airspace, and engages them in a dogfight that threatens to have devastating repercussions.
