Silmido

In 1968, a group of North Korean commandos crossed the border in a failed attempt to assassinate South-Korean president Park Chung-hee. Outraged, South Korea set up Unit 684 on Silmido Island - a bunch of death row inmates given a second chance - training to assassinate North Korea's Kim Il-Sung. With an excellent cast including Korean icon Sung-kee Ahn, 'Silmido' tells the true story of Unit 684 and its ultimate mission.
