What did you think of this film?
A warm-hearted and hard-working delivery man, Geon-woo, gets his 15-minutes of fame when he is named the Model Citizen. His old high school bandmate, Mu-yeol, gets in touch with him, and during their long overdue reunion, a presidential candidate gets assassinated in front of them in a horrific terrorism bombing. Amidst the chaos, Mu-yeol tells an unbelievable story: this is a set-up, and Geon-woo is supposed to take the fall as the assassin and blow himself up. Mu-yeol gives a name card to Geon-woo, tells him to trust no one, then kills himself.

In an utter shock and confusion, Geon-woo scrambles from the scene but becomes a wanted fugitive as the killer of a presidential candidate. From surveillance camera to fingerprints and eyewitnesses, fabricated evidence points to him as the terrorist. Geon-woo seeks the man on the name card, a former operative, and gets his help to escape, but as the invisible forces close in on him, his friends and family are exposed to danger.
