Ryu Sung Joon (Ok Taec Yeon) is a hot-headed detective driven by his emotions first before thinking. His brother, Ryu Sung Hoon (Ha Seok Jin Crash Landing on You 2019) is the opposite. Cool-headed and precise brother, Sung Hoon is a perfectionist and works as a judge graduating top of his class at the Judicial Research and Training Institute. The two brothers along with an empathetic and righteous-driven social worker, Jo Eun Ki (Jung Eun Ji Work Later, Drink Now 2021), get entangled in a murder case involving a young girl. Jo Eun Ki gets called upon to be a juror for the case while Ryu Sung Joon is the detective that captures the perpetrator. Ryu Sung Hoon is the presiding judge on the case.

This unravels a string of murders as Sung Joon and his team of detectives chase down each clue to find the true murderer.
