On a Christmas night, a student fell off the school’s rooftop and died. The police concluded that he committed a suicide, and the school immediately tried to hold a memorial ceremony to quickly move on. A couple of days later, a mysterious statement from a witness who saw the student being murdered was delivered to Seo Yeon, a classmate of the dead student. While the school, the police, and the press fight over who is right, many students get hurt. The only thing the adults care about is closing the case. Seo Yeon and some of her friends declare that they can’t stand by quietly and let this unfair process continue, so they decide to hold a school trial in order to uncover the truth, saying “we’re not going to just let this go.” Students act as counselors, judges, and jurors in the school trial. The trial reveals ugly secrets about the murder case and the hypocrisy of the adults involved in the students' fight for the truth.
