A legendary Korean spy is assigned the task of recovering a national treasure, only to discover that he was set up for failure from the very beginning by the very people he once trusted most. Korea is under Japanese imperialism, and when the Golden Buddha goes missing, what better candidate to ensure its safe return than legendary covert operative Lee? Unfortunately the mission was fixed, and in the process of attempting to recover the Golden Buddha, Lee loses both the statue and his partner. Upon discovering the truth about his doomed mission, a vengeful Lee sets out to settle the score with the man who set him up, and expose the shadowy figure for all to see.
