Mi Yeong, who used to be considered the Major Crimes Unit’s top cop, is stationed behind a desk after having a baby. She leads uneventful yet peaceful days at handling civil complaints and looking after her son and unemployed husband at home. One day, an overly enthusiastic detective Ji Hye, is consigned to Mi Yeong’s team, and they bicker over every little thing from the moment they meet. In fact, they are sisters-in-law, and neither are happy about sitting next to each other all day in the same office. But differences are pushed aside when a woman who came to file a report gets run over in front of Mi Yeong and Ji Hye. They discover that the woman is the victim of ‘spy cam porn’ and has been threatened it would go up on a community site in 3 days. The two cops take the case to the relevant powers, but due to workload, no one can handle it in time. Ji Hye’s burning passion for justice rekindles Mi Yeong’s sense of duty, and the two decide to take matters into their own hands.

Cast & Credits
I want to compare it to Midnight Runners, both have leads that are not taken seriously by their colleagues, and they end up uncovering a big case.. and maybe a little to No Mercy, it's rare to have a female centered plot, especially a crime genre, but they were not the over the top "1 woman vr 100 men" like NM and they were able to keep a great balance...
the case itself is more "real" and current events than the usual human trafficking that most crime garners go for.. its really was heartbreaking...
there's nothing wrong with a light female power crime story, if anything we need more stories like this.. I also really liked the characters ;)
The movie had a strong cast, with two strong female leads that had nice chemistry. They delivered both on the emotional level and on the action level, which was probably the best part of the movie.
However, the plot, although it seemed strong at first, it was not presented well enough. That felt like they were degrading the whole mystery and crime case to a more simple one when it wasn't.
So, overall, four out of ten.
