Sitges Festival – Official Section: Best Director

At the borders of Russia, China and North Korea. Overwhelmed by debt, almost in poverty, a man takes on a contract to kill someone in a last-ditch attempt to get money for his family. He knows very little about his victim, only that he is a wealthy man who lives in Seoul, where he travels to carry out the task and to try to find his wife, an immigrant who has recently disappeared. Little does he imagine that he will end up sucked into the terrible machinery of international crime.
