Details About the Film

This film is part of the series SHOW ME: Season 2

In the 1970s, Korea is under the absolute control of President Park, with dissent chilled by his Korean Central Intelligence Agency.

The new director of the KCIA steps in line to be second-in-command of the nation, when his predecessor exiles to the United States where the investigation of ‘Koreagate’ is underway. As tension escalates, the maneuvers of those desiring power collide explosively.
