Siren

“Nautic Wave” is a virtual facility that processes noise.
One day, Mr. Oh, who works at the facility commits suicide
amid compensation negotiation with the locals.
Taeseung, who replaces him also tries hard to finish the negotiation,
but the owners of a local factory and farm nip in the bud.
As the suspicious behavior of the two men continues,
Taeseung starts to wonder if it’s related to the death of Mr. Oh.
From that point, Taeseung starts to investigate the village full-on,
and the case becomes the wheel within wheels.
