1983: Ji-hwan (Jo Jung-suk) is about to wed his colleague and wonderful girlfriend, Yoon-jeong (Im Soo-jung) when a sudden crime befalls the couple and Ji-hwan is nearly killed, stabbed by a would-be mugger. Skip forward to 2015: police detective Geon-woo (Lee Jin-wook) is shot by a suspect, mysteriously leaving him and Ji-hwan, two men who lived 30 years apart, fighting for their lives in the same hospital. As they recover, a strange connection becomes apparent, and they begin to see through each other's eyes in their dreams. Geon-woo pieces together clues of Ji-hwan's case and decides to go after a murder mystery from the past to save the woman they both love. 

Acclaimed director Kwak Jae-young's Time Renegades (2016) thrilled audiences to box office success with its time-bending twist on the classic Korean murder mystery genre.
