After President Park’s assassination, martial law is declared. Security commander Chun Doo-gwang (Hwang Jung-min) and the officers who follow him stage a coup. Lee Tae-shin (Jung Woo-sung), a stubborn commander of the Capital Garrison Command who believes that soldiers should not take political action, fights against Chun Doo-gwang.
