During the Korean War, a platoon of North Korean soldiers are attacked with only Commander Lee, Private Jang and kid soldier Taek Ki surviving the carnage. After meeting a beautiful young girl named Yeo Il, the soldiers follow her back to her village, an Eden-like place known as Dongmakgol.
In this town that time forgot, the locals carry on with their lives, completely oblivious to the fact that the Korean War has been raging on for the last couple of years. Due to their ignorance of the political situation, the villagers see nothing wrong with welcoming two South Korean soldiers, Lieutenant Pyo and a cowardly medic. Adding an international flavor to the mix is Captain Smith, an American pilot forced to make an emergency landing in the mythical Dongmakgol.
After an intense confrontation that causes the destruction of the village's prized warehouse, the bitter rivals decide to put their differences aside for the time being, until they can help make up for the loss.
