Certificate: R

Running Time: 118 minutes.

Synopsis: A professional Go player is framed for his brother’s murder and, upon his release, seeks revenge against those responsible in the seedy underworld of Go, where the greatest wager is your life.

Go is the extremely popular tactical game which is legendary in Asian countries.

Switch on a TV in South Korea and chances are you’ll stumble across a competitive Go/Baduk tournament.
