In 1987 Korea, under an oppressive military regime, a college student gets killed during a police interrogation involving torture. Government officials are quick to cover up the death and order the body to be cremated. A prosecutor who is supposed to sign the cremation release, raises questions about a 21-year-old kid dying of a heart attack, and begins looking into the case for the truth. Despite a systematic attempt to silence everyone involved in the case, the truth gets out, causing an eruption of public outrage.
This is a movie more than a movie. It's also a history, emotions and lives in Korea, 1987.
No actor(actress) has been consumed in vain in the movie.
Every moment is well directed. This is the great movie such like 'Citizen Kane' and 'Shawshank Redemption'. It's a historical movie, a humanism drama dedicated to freedom fighters all around the world.
*. 1987: The direct democracy has been declared in Korea.
2017: The corrupt government has been collapsed in Korea.
