Two South Korean soldiers are at the border with North Korea. A land mine wounds them. This is a problem. North and South Korea are not friends. They do not like each other. Now, the situation is even worse.

North Korean TV shows young people. They want to fight. They want to destroy South Korea. South Korean soldiers are ready to fight. Maybe, war is coming.
