Amid the bloody civil war in Somalia, the embassies of North and South Korea are trying to find a way out of the current situation.

In January 1991, the ongoing 10-year civil war in Somalia had already reached the capital. Employees of the South and North Korean embassies are trying to escape the chaos on the streets full of insurgents and return to their homeland. However, for this they will have to overcome an incredible barrier: their countries are almost at war with each other, but they have to work together and in agreement with each other if they want to survive.

South Korea’s 2021 revenue leader blockbuster was filmed in Morocco like Ridley Scott’s “Black Hawk Down”. Its exotic landscapes intensify the imitation of the chaotic Somali streets and the effect of being on the ground. The filmmakers were able to mix a socio-political story with excellent “action” and tension.
