Korean war drama. In the midst of the Korean War, following the landing of US forces at Incheon, a small troop of Communist soldiers is ambushed and massacred by a military unit from the South. Three survivors of the attack manage to escape and flee north where they meet a crazy young woman, Yeo-il, who leads them to a tiny and remote village called Dongmakgol. However, the village is also a temporary refuge to several other visitors - two Southern soldiers, plus a US Navy pilot whose plane has crash-landed nearby. In no time at all the civil conflict is brought to the peaceful village in the form of a futile standoff that ends with the village's food store being destroyed. A temporary truce is called as the opposing forces reluctantly agree to work together to rebuild and restock the store. But as the soldiers begin to settle into the daily life of the village, their peaceful idyll comes under threat from the most unexpected quarters.
