The battle for a strategic stronghold heats up as the Korean War winds to a bloody close in this war drama from Rough Cut director Jang Hoon. Korea is in crisis; and as soldiers from both the north and south clash over a coveted hill that will offer the winner a clear advantage, a soldier named Kang heads to the front line to try and get the situation in perspective. Meanwhile, as whispers of a cease-fire grow louder, the fighting only becomes more intense and Kang crosses paths with his old friend Kim, who seems to thrive on the chaos of combat.
