This South Korean black comedy which follows the exploits of two bumbling fugitives is an allegory for the country's recent political situations. As cell mates Moon Sung-kin and Yi Kyung-yong (the actors' real names) are being transferred to another prison, their bus is hijacked. In the resulting scuffle, the two accidentally escape. They decide to turn themselves in. Then they meet a daring young woman who fancies herself an outlaw. She convinces them to go to Seoul where they attempt to rob a bank. They fail miserably and escape in an armored truck. Embarrassed by their lack of skill, Moon and Yi head for the North Korean border.
