    • After refusing to cover up the affiliated University’s error regarding the national university entrance exam, Professor KIM Kyoung-ho is unfairly dismissed. He loses his lawsuit for reinstatement and his appeal is overruled without reason. So he threatens the judge with a crossbow demanding a fair trial and the two wrestle ending up with the judge claiming a blood wound. However, KIM argues that he didn’t shoot the judge and the trial proceeds with difficulty: a battle at court without concessions, confronting statements, crucial evidences missing. Lawyers give up on KIM due to his uncompromising character. But when he meets an unorthodox lawyer PARK, the trials start to get lively.
