Synopsis: High school student Cha Woo-Sol (Kim Min-Suk) is relentlessly bullied by Bae Seok-Chan (Jung Won-Chang). Eventually it becomes too much for him to bear so he transfers to a new school. When Seok-Chan follows him, Woo-Sol hits breaking point and he lashes out with a knife. Unfortunately, this leads to Woo-Sol being sentenced to 3 years in juvenile prison while Seok-Chan vows to get revenge. Knowing what awaits him on the outside, Woo-Sol asks fellow convict and former MMA champion Jung Do-Hyun (Wi Ha-Joon) to teach him how to fight. [© Far East Films]
