    When Japan invaded Korea, Lee Hoe-young donated all of his savings and moved to Manchuria to open a school. There, he trained soldiers and scholars who later led the army to win numerous battles during the early 20th century. Lee also joined the underground anarchist movement in Shanghai to fight against Japanese forces. Lee later died in prison after being captured and tortured by the Japanese army. The drama begins from the point of view of Japanese war correspondent Kimura Junpei, who is writing his report "Lee Hoe-young, the Terrorist." But as he delves into the life of Lee, he comes to understand and admire Lee Hoe-young as a freedom fighter who led the Korean independence movement.
