Synopsis

Set in Panmujom, the demilitarised zone on the border of North and South Korea. One day a North Korean border guard is shot, apparently in the line of duty by a South Korean guard. Both countries regard the incident as a grave provocation and, to defuse the situation, they appeal to neutral states for help. Accordingly, a female Swiss army captain of Korean descent is sent to investigate.
