This drama has a background of the year 1999, where there is a detective called Choi Hyung In (Yoo Jae Myung) who lives his life.

Choi Hyung In finally got a chance to do an investigation of a small town’s murder case. After exploring the case, he assumes that case has something related to his wife’s death.

On the other side, Jo Jung Hyun (Han Ye Ri) has a label as a terrorist’s family. This label was given by society because her brother participated in that attack 10 years ago.

There is also a prisoner namely Jo Kyung Ho (Um Tae Goo), who went back to Korea in 1989. At that time, he was known to make a release of sarin gas when he was in a train station.
