The detective tries to cover-up the incident by hiding the victim’s corpse in his deceased mother's coffin. Just when he thinks things are all over, Gun-su receives a mysterious call from someone claiming to be the sole witness to the crime. Gun-su is soon blackmailed, and a non-stop, edge-of-the-seat game of cat and mouse ensues.
Kim Seong-hun’s police thriller premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and won three Grand Bell Awards (presented by The Motion Pictures Association of Korea), including Best Director.
