A police detective’s life is thrown into turmoil when he inadvertently steps into a top-secret operation.
Kang Sung Jin (Son Hyun Joo) is a dedicated police detective with a strong moral compass. When he isn’t spending time putting bad guys in jail, Sung Jin wants to build a happy life with his wife, Song Jung Sook (Ra Mi Ran), and their son with the dream of one day buying a two-story home. But Sung Jin’s life is thrown into turmoil in the spring of 1987 when he captures Kim Tae Sung (Jo Dal Hwan), a suspected serial killer.
Before he realizes it, Sung Jin is pulled into a top-secret operation led by Choi Gyu Nam (Jang Hyuk), the cold and calculating planning chief of the National Security Agency. Newspaper reporter Chu Jae Jin (Kim Sang Ho) suspects something dangerous may be afoot in the investigation into Tae Sung, but his warnings to Sung Jin go nowhere. Sung Jin is reluctantly forced to take part in a secret conspiracy for the good of his family. But can he survive the dangerous high-stakes operation?
