In this powerful true story set in 1980, a down-on-his-luck taxi driver from Seoul is hired by a foreign journalist who wants to go to the town of Gwangju for the day.

They arrive to find a city under siege by the military government, with the citizens, led by a determined group of college students, rising up to demand freedom. What began as an easy fare becomes a life-or-death struggle in the midst of the Gwangju Uprising, a critical event in modern South Korea.

  • 4 stars "This emotional, yet humorous, bio-pic is poignant and timely for today's political climate around the world. When there is little hope left for the oppressed, rebel against the corrupt fascist government with people power, compassion, resilience and a portable 16mm film stock camera!"
