Set during the Korean War, North Korean and Chinese prisoners of war are sent to a camp on Geoje Island in South Korea. The POW camp itself is under intense strife between prisoners who are pro-communists and anti-communists. Rho Ki Soo is a young North Korean soldier held at the Geoje POW Camp.
Meanwhile, Sergeant Jackson is ordered by a superior officer into forming a tap dancing team from the POW camp. He holds an audition in the camp and selects Chinese soldier Xiaofang , South Korean Kang Byung Sam who was falsely accused of being a communist sympathizer and civilian Yang Pan Rae who wants to support her family. Sergeant Jackson also recognizes the immense talent Rho Ki Soo has for dance. Soon, the "Swing Kids" are formed, but will their dreams of dancing come true?
Based on Korean musical “Rho Ki-Soo,” written by Jang Woo-Sung and directed by Kim Tae Hyung.
