Acclaimed filmmaker Shin Sang-ok and glamorous actress Choi Eun-hee were the hottest couple of ‘70s South Korea—but only after their romance was over did their collaborations receive unlimited resources.

Enduring torture and imprisonment, their love is rekindled and they realize escape is only possible through filmmaking.
