17 journalists have been fired since 2008 when President Lee Myung-bak came to power. Surprisingly, they were just regular employees who were forced to fight back when they saw their company being broken down by authority. The reality that hit them for 7 years was miserable. Censorship of the press has now become the norm with journalists conforming to it and the 17 journalists view their former colleagues with mixed feelings. As their chances of returning to their workplace becomes slimmer, they continue to search for ways to live as journalists. The film turns the spotlight on the state of journalism today through those that have been laid off and are fighting with reality. Resistance becomes numb with society’s indifference and the journalists’ arduous journey to protect the path of a journalist is moving in the most bitter way. (KIM Youngjin)
