Theater actor Wan-ju has an interesting part-time job. He serves as a stand-in boyfriend for single woman and helps unpopular guys find dates. One day, a murder is committed in an alleyway near his house. Wan-ju isnít concerned about what happened because the incident had nothing to do with him. But then heís asked to make a statement about the killing. Vowing that the murderer has to be properly punished, the mother of the victim offers Wan-ju a lot of money to falsely testify about the murder. Wan-ju accepts the offer and claims that he saw the murderer at the scene. But then he realizes that his false testimony brands an innocent young man as the murderer. To get the investigation back on track, Wan-ju seeks out the person who asked him to lie, only to discover that she isnít who she said she was. A mystery-thriller that reveals the vicious consequences that can come from one seemingly simple lie. (NAM Dong-chul)
