Documents the partitioning of Korea; the battles for Seoul, Inchon, and Pusan; the entry of Chinese troops into the war; the armistice at Panmunjom and the establishment of the demilitarized zone.

In portraying South Korea, the program follows the parade of riots and assassinations as the country teetered between repression and promises of democracy.
