Win tickets to see the film South Korea is entering in next year's Academy Awards

In this powerful true story set in 1980, a down-on-his-luck taxi driver from Seoul is hired by a foreign journalist who wants to go to the town of Gwangju for the day. They arrive to find a city under siege by the military government, with the citizens, led by a determined group of college students, rising up to demand freedom. What began as an easy job becomes a life-or-death struggle in the midst of the Gwangju Uprising, a critical event in modern South Korea.

Although stopped by police roadblocks at the edge of Gwangju, Man-seob is desperate to earn his taxi fare, and eventually manages to find a way into the city. But as time passes, the situation grows more and more serious, and Man-seob keeps thinking of his young daughter at home all alone.
