Synopsis

On the presidential election day of Republic of Korea in 2012. Two rival candidates, PARK Gun-hye and MOON Jae-in compete in a neck and neck race. At 8:45PM, KBS announces that candidate Park is most likely to win the race. As the counting nears the end around midnight, Park leads the race with 51.7% of the votes. Many observers presume no change of the situation and leave the counting facilities. Between 00:58AM and 04:43AM, however, an odd phenomenon occurs. Candidate Moon starts gaining more votes than Park throughout the country. This phenomenon is observed even in the counties that have been considered as Park’s home grounds. Accordingly the percentage of the votes for Park starts dropping slightly. When the race is over, Park ends up becoming the President-elect with 51.6% of the votes. Ironically, 516 (May 16) is the date that Park’s father, PARK Chung-hee carried out a military coup d’etat to seize the power in 1961. Could this be a sheer coincidence? What happened during these three hours and forty-five minutes? The rule No. 1 of Forensic Science says otherwise; ‘Every contact leaves a trace.’ This film traces back the contacts that might have been made on this very election day.
