When the Baekdu Mountain suddenly erupts, the whole of Korea was in shock and it was predicted that more eruptions will ensue. 

Ms. Jeon Yoo-kyung, the Secretary to the Presidents seeks the assistance of Prof. Kang Bong-rae who have studies Baekdu Mountain and predicted the eruption three years earlier but was laughed at back then.

Agreed to assist Ms. Jeon in her mission to stop further eruptions, Mr. President agrees to a mission of stealing the nuclear warheads from North Korea that will later detonate inside a mine under the mountain to stop further eruptions, a theory according to Prof. Kang.

Jo In-chang, who was supposed to end his days as a soldier, was asked to lead the technical mission in acquiring the uranium in the warheads, along with a tactical team. Midway and thousands of feet in the air, the other plane that brought the tactical team caught fire and crashlanded. Team Capt. Jo was requested to retrieve the mission plan from the burning plane before it exploded and killed all the soldiers.

Now, Capt. Jo has to take over both missions (technical and tactical) - acquiring the information about the warheads from a double agent and bring it back to the mines underneath the mountain to stop further eruptions.

How will Capt. Jo and his team carry out the missions that will determine the fates of North dan South Korea, without breaching the military treaty between both nations?

Plot: 4.7/ 5.0 There are a lot of twists thrown along the movie. When you thought that was about it, you'll be pleasantly surprised by another twist. And I like the easy flow of the movie - not so tense but very engaging.

Cast: 4.9/ 5.0 Everyone was at their best - I love their performance.  No complaint at all. 

Will I watch it again: I would, in my room.
