Ha Yoon-joo (Han Hyo-joo) is the newest member of an elite police unit that specializes in the surveillance of high profile criminals. When it comes to shadowing a target, the rookie police woman shows a great deal of promise, but she has much to prove to cranky chief detective Hwang Won-jin (Sol Kyung-gu). The veteran cop makes it clear he has little use for a newbie who cannot see and memorize absolutely every detail, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, during an operation. Ha’s skills are immediately put to the test when Hwang’s team begins tracking James (Jung Woo-sung), the enigmatic leader of a gang of vicious, bank-robbing thugs. As James’ crimes begin to escalate in severity, the rookie realizes that her on-the-job training could prove to be fatal.
