Synopsis: Amid a coup, a North Korean agent escapes south with the country's injured leader in an attempt to keep him alive and prevent a Korean war. Um Cheol-woo, a highly trained, lethal operative in the North Korean army, is given an unusual order one day by his superior, General Ri. He is asked to come out of early retirement and travel to an economic zone in Kaesong, a city just over the border from the South, to assassinate two men who pose a grave threat to national security. Um goes as instructed, but an unexpected scene greets him in Kaesong. North Korean soldiers plotting a coup have managed to hack into a highly sophisticated U.S. rocket launcher, and they fire its payload (nicknamed “Steel Rain” for the devastating shrapnel it spreads) directly at Kaesong’s center. As it happens, the North Korean leader (referred to in the film as “No. 1”) is visiting the city that day. But despite causing widespread destruction, the coup plotters’ attempts to kill No. 1 are thwarted by Um, and in the resulting confusion Um manages to cross into South Korea. From the writer-director of "The Attorney" comes this action-thriller starring Jung Woo-sung and Kwak Do-won.
