Stark realism melds with flamboyant, highly visual storytelling in director Lee Sang-woo's tale of a father and son bound together by fate as they prepare to do battle in a violent and sprawling conflict. A Korean man who fled his country after committing a murder nearly fifteen years ago, the father prepares to leave Manila and visit his elderly mother now that the statute of limitations has voided his transgression. But his wife wants the man to take his son along for the journey, and when he refuses the turmoil within their household hits an all-time high. Despite his insistence that his son remain behind, however, this father has not yet realized that he and his boy are condemned to remain together no matter how much either would struggle to deny it.
