In 1994 Korea, notorious serial killers were caught. They had killed 6 people, and made one of the hostages to participate in the murders by force. They even ate the corpse before they burned them off. These unforgettable killers were called JIJON Clan and Koreans still remember them as the most infamous criminals in history. JIJON Clan was finally sentenced to death. About 20 years have passed, the film interviews people that were involved with the JIJON Clan; detectives, death penalty executor, and a nun who stayed with them till their death. From their testimony, the film looks back at the mid 90’s society and finds out the true meaning of crime, eventually revealing the ‘real’ killer beneath this.
