When Kang suspects his young girlfriend, Hee-soo (Shin Min-a), of being unfaithful, he orders Sun-woo to take care of the problem. When Sun-woo discovers Hee-soo with her lover, instead of killing her as ordered, he grants them mercy and let”s them go.
Now Sun-woo is being hunted down by those he once considered brothers, and must battle his way through his own gang on a path to a final confrontation with Kang.
