In 2071, the Korean region succumbs to the devastating effects of extreme air pollution, turning it into a desolate wasteland.
The once affluent population had been decimated, leaving only 1% of the original population scattered in separate districts based on their social status.
In this bleak reality, the surviving residents depend on oxygen masks to battle the toxic air and on a group of special delivery drivers known as “Knights” to provide them with the essential supplies, especially fresh oxygen, needed for their survival.
Among the legendary Knights, there are those known as ‘5-8’ who possess unparalleled skill and courage.
Fate is intertwined when ‘5-8’ meets a boy named Sa-Wol, who has a strong desire to become a Knight like his idol.
Realizing the potential in Sa-Wol, ‘5-8’ decides to take the boy under his wing, training him strictly so he can fulfill his dream amidst the dangerous and unforgiving world they live in.
Together, they navigate the darkness and danger that lurk around every corner, struggling to bring hope and change to the shattered remains of society.
