Introduction
Right agter the formation of Chosun Dynasty, occur to the movement of partisan society, 'Danshim'. A battle between anti-government resistant and the unsettled government. In short, a historical drama that deals with the political power game and their wisdom between the head of Danshim, Lee Mu-Young and father and son who are government's officers. In the beginning part, it start with a flowing reproduction which reminds us of the traditional historical drama. But, like every other rules in the sword, whatever the reasons are, one becomes to bear a grudge and goes against the old rules to revenge oneself of the offender. Instead of the father who killed himself with bearing his devoted heart, the true 'Red Heart' of the young man who faces the heas of Danshim all by himself arouses chivalry as in a traditional sword choreographic film.
