Actress Park Hyo-ju plays the lead as a journalist named Lee Hye-ri who is the only witness of a case. She struggles to disclose her findings. Actor Ryu Jun-yeol, who was in the hit drama series “Reply 1988”, plays an evil character in the film.
The film is based on a true story which was uncovered in February 2014 in Shinui Island, in Jeollanam-do. Many of the workers in the salt farms are mentally ill or disabled. Their basic human rights were infringed as they had to work over 19 hours a day without being paid and they were also physically abused.
Lee Ji-seung, the director of “No Tomorrow”, has made other films based on real stories, including the hit movie “Azooma” (2012).
