In the spy game, the smallest of details can be the difference between a well-executed mission and a fatal mistake. Joe’s three new recruits must learn this lesson one way, or the hard way. Joe soon introduces them to Jong, a cruel but wise fight instructor who reminds them they are just beginners. The cadets will be pushed to their limits.
But Joe knows that not even Jong’s cruel tutelage will be enough to prepare the new agents for what they have to face in their missions. Joe will do everything in his reach to teach them well, especially if it involves pain. He quickly assigns them to a simple job under his control; infiltrate a social event to keep one businessman from signing a contract. But their underestimation of the job soon puts the target and the mission at risk.
