Heedless of Private KANG's trauma, he's got award of a period of leave for catching a spy. After returning to the unit, KANG's behavior becomes more and more violent, and later becomes discharged by a mental disorder. But KANG can't stay away from the unit. Meanwhile, having witnessed the gruesome death of her lover, Mee-young goes mad and mistakes any man around the base for her lover. The soldiers take advantage of her one by one, and her trauma worsens. The beautiful coastline becomes a living nightmare for everyone as Private KANG and Mee-young wreck havoc around the shores.
