June 29th, 2002. As the citizens of South Korea celebrate the FIFA World Cup, the North Korean navy sends two patrol boats to a disputed border in the Yellow Sea. The surprise attack on Battleship 357, now remembered as the Battle of Yeonpyeong, honors the men who bravely fought for freedom - on the Northern Limit Line.
It's a really great film, though I think the picture was painted... but only in dark colors. Meaning that they could have shared more about the cast of characters... it is still a strong film, where war is fought on all sides.
