This movie’s main character is Kim Man-seob, a taxi driver and a widowed father. This movie generally proves that any big or popular person can make fault like an unstoppable star Kang-ho Song.

One day Kim Man-seob hears that one other taxi driver is talking about a foreign client. That client wants to travel to Gwangju for the day and return to Seoul before curfew, and for this drive, he will pay 100,000 won. If we convert this won to USD, it may be roughly 565 USD. But unfortunately, Man-seob can not get this client. The name of that client is Jürgen “Peter” Hinzpeter, and he is a West German journalist. He wanted to travel to report on the increasing civil unrest in Gwangju. But before heading off to Gwangju, Man-seob meets Peter and lures him into his taxi.

They both see that all the roads are blocked and heavily guarded by soldiers for going to Gwangju. Then it will be better for them to return to Seoul was told by Man-seob to Peter. But the answer from Peter was negative, and he refuses to pay the 100,000 won unless they reach Gwangju. Man-seob introduces Peter as a businessman and then able to enter the city. They find all the shops are closed and the streets are deserted in Gwangju. There they face students and ordinary citizens who were taking part in large-scale demonstrations against the government. Then Kim Man-seob wants to back to Seoul though Peter ignores him.

By taking the assist of university student Jae-sik and a Gwangju taxi driver named HWANG, he started to shoot with his camera. But the situation was becoming more serious as time was passing. The people of that city committee fire Kim Man-seob’s taxi though they are able to survive themselves; after all this, Kim Man-seob returns to Seoul with his daughter.
