Storyline

Jeong Yoon is a caring wife and mother and a sensitive woman who finds herself plunged into a legal ordeal thousands of miles from home. After years of planning, she and her husband Jong Bae open an auto body repair shop, only to see everything they've worked for stripped away when a loan Jong Bae had guaranteed defaults. Facing financial despondency, the couple gets into a vicious fight about money, sending Jeong Yeon away, leaving only a cryptic note saying she'll be back in a few days. When she turns up looking nervous at Orly Airport in Paris with over 30 kilograms of cocaine in her luggage, it is the beginning of a globe-spanning nightmare that began with an old friend and a tempting proposition.

this made me cry
14 June 2014 | by barrie-729-611806See all my reviews

The story of a woman who transport drugs into Korea might be a turn off to you at first and you might think that she deserves all she gets, but this film is really gripping and if you have any emotions they will flow out of you through this movie, the acting is excellent by all the actors and as a personal thing I just love Ko Soo and have never seen him act badly, the performance to remember is his wife in this who really grabs at your heart even though technically she is a criminal but she pays dearly for her unwitting crime. This is a stellar movie and surely worth a couple hours of your time. It took me a while to get hold of a copy with English subs but it really was worth the wait. If you don't like this feel free to blame me but realise there must be something wrong with you emotions, 2 hours of my life that I was glad to give.
