“To me, that child is my country”

After the fall of King Gwanghae, Joseon’s greatest swordsman and royal guard, Tae-yul, is forced into hiding. In the meantime, Joseon is caught between the Qing and Ming dynasties’ conflict, and is at the mercy of Qing’s envoy and slave trader Kurutai’s ridiculous demands. As the suffering of the general populace deepens, Tae-yul’s daughter is taken away as a tribute to Qing and although he wanted to live his remaining days in solace, Tae-yul has no choice but to unsheathe his sword and face the Qing foes in order to bring his daughter back.
