A string of bank robberies sets off a public panic. In order to appease the residents of the city and fulfill his own ambitions, the newly appoints chief of police decides to hold an anti-bank robbery drill to demonstrate the effectiveness of the police. He secretly appoints a naïve traffic cop to disguise as a robber, overlooking the fact that the inflexible, by-the-book officer will go all out in accomplishing any assigned mission-even when it's robbery.

I can't remember when for the last time was I so charmed by the movie. Very ingenious script, congratulations to the script writers. Quite dense and, nevertheless, balanced story. As for the direction, I was very surprised to know that this film was a debut work of Ra Hee-Chan. A masterpiece!
And the last thing to mention to explain my feelings better. Not only me, but most Russians are charmed by this film, because the relations between people and police, shown there, are so far from what we observe in our everyday life. Russia has degraded to a full-fledged police state, where the police can kill people and avoid any prosecution. All government structures and judicial system are corrupt and are subject to the negative selection. As a result of this selection, we can only dream about non-criminal policemen and other officials. Presidential elections were heavily rigged (thousands of violations detected), the so-called President refuses to be replaceable. Watching this film, we can hardly imagine any similar behavior of the police and the government - the more reasons to watch this nice film.
