However, when Hae-guk starts asking questions about his father’s life – and unexplained death – the residents and their charismatic Chief (JUNG Jae-young, The Divine Weapon) exchange mysterious looks and seem anxious to rush him out of their village. Something isn’t right, and Hae-guk is determined to uncover the truth… at any cost!
