    • Synopsis
    • In September 1985, when the ideology between South and North Korea is sharply opposed, South Korean democracy activist KIM Jeong-tae is forcefully dragged to Namyoung where the government’s national security agency is located at. There he met LEE Doo-han, the professional interrogator who is notorious for the ruthless torture. With a distorted patriotism LEE detained KIM over 20 days and tortured him with water and electricity until he confesses that he is under the control of North Korea. After 20 years from that nightmare KIM confronts LEE again who becomes a political prisoner. Staring at LEE with vacant eyes, KIM asks himself “Will I ever be able to forgive him?”
