Jo Pil-ho is a corrupt cop who helps a partner escape after a heist. Teaming up for a seemingly last one, Pil-ho and his partner decide to rob the police warehouse but an explosion thwarts their plans, leaving Pil-ho unconscious and his partner dead. When his own department begins suspecting his involvement in the explosion, for which he isn't responsible, Pil-ho decides to erase all evidence pointing towards him: and in the process finds himself enlisting a teenage girl's help in exposing a corporate scandal. Initially doing it just to get his name cleared, Pil-ho eventually finds himself becoming the girl's unlikely protector after a series of violent events.Written by
Everyone is on the take in this Korea from the Chaebol, to government officials, cops and doctors. The 2014 MV Sewol ferry sinking serves as a backdrop for what the youth see as adult failure. Grab what you can and force deals as needed, nice guys are losers. The cop is caught in the middle as his own small scam intersects with a really big one. Some inventive fight scenes, the lead henchman is a terrific menace. The protagonist gets his redemption arc but all in all a grim story.
