Song Woo-seok is a high-school graduate lawyer who served as a judge. Back to his hometown Busan, Woo-suk becomes a successful tax attorney. Being petty and snobbish, he devalues the student protest. One day, Sun-ae, the owner of Woo-seok's favorite restaurant, asks him for help. Her son, Jin-woo, who she has lost contact for a month, was arrested by the police and will be tried for violating the National Security Law. They visit Jin-woo and are shocked to see him brutally tortured. Woo-seok serves as a lawyer for Jin-woo and other students, fighting against the officers who fabricated the case and the court that seems to take sides with the police. Woo-seok is also harassed by law enforcement, but his belief in justice remains unshakable. Since then, he becomes a well-known human rights lawyer.
