    Set during the Korean War, North Korean and Chinese prisoners of war are sent to a camp on Geoje Island in South Korea. The POW camp itself is under intense strife between prisoners who are pro-communists and anti-communists. Rho Ki-Soo (Do Kyung-Soo) is a young North Korean soldier held at the Geoje POW Camp. Meanwhile, Sergeant Jackson (Jared Grimes) is ordered by a superior officer into forming a tap dancing team from the POW camp. He holds an audition in the camp and selects Chinese soldier Xiaofang (Kim Min-Ho), South Korean Kang Byung-Sam (Oh Jung-Se) who was falsely accused of being a communist sympathizer and civilian Yang Pan-Rae (Park Hye-Soo) who wants to support her family. Sergeant Jackson also recognizes the immense talent Rho Ki-Soo has for dance. Soon, the "Swing Kids" are formed, but will their dreams of dancing come true?
