A murder investigation becomes pop entertainment after a pretty copy editor is brutally slain, and the media turns both the detectives and suspects into instant celebrities. A woman has been stabbed to death, and Detective Choi is determined to capture her killer. But when audience polls prompt viewers to guess the identity of the murderer, the detective, his fellow investigators, and his several suspects all get their fifteen minutes of fame. As an ambitious television producer presses Detective Choi to solve the case on a deadline or risk withering ratings, the media circus becomes a three-ring farce complete with interviews, ballet dances, and even a live exorcism. In the midst of all the chaos, Detective Choi begins to wonder whether his investigation has actually brought him anywhere closer to the truth, or if he's gotten so swept up in the frenzy that he's lost his deductive reasoning skills.
