Three North Korean sleeper agents successfully infiltrate the South, and receive an order that throws their entire mission into disarray in this lighthearted espionage comedy. Ryu-han may look like the village idiot to the unsuspecting citizens of a sleepy South Korean village, but in truth he is a loyal North Korean operative awaiting his orders. After two years with no word from his contacts back home, Ryu-han is surprised to see fellow spies Hae-rang and Hae-jin turn up in town - the former disguised as a wild-haired rock star and the latter posing as an average student. As Ryu-han offers the two newcomers tips on blending in to their new surroundings, the three become fast friends. Later, when the political landscape of their oppressive homeland experiences a seismic shift, the three agents receive orders to commit suicide, and begin to question their loyalties for the very first time.
