Synopsis

Kyung-min, a businessman, and Jong-suk, a failed writer, are former schoolmates. During a reunion dinner they look back on their school days, when a particularly cruel group of students, « the dogs », exercised a reign of terror by hazing and bullying part of the other students, the « pigs ». One day, Kim Chul, one of their mates, stood up to the « dogs », becoming the only hope of ending their tyranny. Fifteen years on, he remains a hero. But behind this figure, the two men recall the murky story of their bond.
