It's the 1940s, and Korea is still under Japan's colonial rule. Devil may care adventurer Bong-gu and thrill-seeking jazz singer Chun-ja are after the "Light of the East," an enormous diamond set on a Buddhist statue in Seokguram cave. Though their mission is thwarted when Japan's head manages to reach the gem first, Bong-gu and Chun-ja scheme to infiltrate the party being thrown to celebrate the acquisition and steal away with the "Light of the East" before it is sent to Japan.
