  • Synopsis
  • Operating a pawn shop in a small neighborhood, Cha Tae-sik now leads a quiet life. His only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi, who lives next door. So-mi’s mother, Hyo-jeong, is a heroin addict who smuggles drugs from a drug trafficking organization. She pawns her camera bag to Tae-sik; he does not realize it has the stolen drugs inside. When the traffickers find out where the drugs are, by torturing Hyo-jeong, they proceed to kidnap her and her daughter. The gang sends two thugs to Tae-sik's pawn shop to retrieve the stolen drugs, but they are easily overpowered by Tae-sik; it is the first time in the film that he has displayed his martial arts skills. However, upon learning that the gang now has in their possession both Hyo-jeong and So-mi, Tae-sik gives the beaten gang members the camera bag and its contents.

    Realizing that Tae-sik may serve better as a mule than their former thug, the brothers that lead the gang — Man-sik and Jong-sik — promise to release Hyo-jeong and So-mi under the condition that Tae-sik make a delivery for them. Tae-sik makes the decision to face the outside world in order to rescue So-mi. However, the delivery was part of a larger plot to eliminate a drug ring superior, Mr. Oh, and Tae-sik is arrested. At the same time, Hyo-jeong’s body, with her organs harvested, is discovered in the back of the car used by Tae-sik to make the delivery, and Tae-sik realizes that So-mi’s is also in danger. He fights off half a dozen detectives and escapes from the police station. During his escape, the police are bewildered at Tae-sik's display of power, combat techniques, and agility. They further investigate his bio and find out that he was once a black operations agent for the Korean government with numerous commendations, but left the Service after his pregnant wife was murdered by an assassin. The assassin shot Tae-sik twice, but was killed by other agency officers before he could kill Tae-sik.

    Realizing this, the Narcotics bureau head contacts a weakened Tae-sik after his encounter with the gang's highly trained assassin, Ramrowan, who works for the brothers. Now with the knowledge that So-mi is being used as an "ant" — a child used by Chinese gangs to smuggle drugs and money — and that she will be killed to harvest her organs, Tae-sik sets out to locate and save So-mi.

    A violent confrontation occurs in a Chinese drug manufacturing location where Tae-sik is able to free several child slaves and kill off the younger of the brothers, Jong-sik. The action continues in the brothers' posh condo unit, which is heavily manned. Tae-sik breaks down when a vessel containing So-mi's harvested eyes is presented to him by Man-sik. In a magnificent fight scene, Tae-sik proceeds to kill everyone in the room except for Ramrowan, who appears to admire Tae-sik's fighting prowess. A short but intense knife fight occurs between him and Tae-sik, culminating with Tae-sik brutally stabbing Ramrowan to death.

    After killing Man-sik in a parking garage, Tae-sik is preparing to commit suicide out of his grief when a scared and dirty So-mi emerges from the darkness. She had been saved by Ramrowan; he had taken pity on her because she had been kind to him. It is then revealed that the eyes in the container belonged to the gangster's harvesting surgeon, who had been killed off-camera by Ramrowan.

    A police escort takes Tae-sik and So-mi together in the back of the detective’s car, to take Tae-sik into custody. While she sleeps, Tae-sik asks if they can be dropped off at a small convenience store. Tae-sik buys a backpack along with other school supplies. He tells her that she's going to be on her own now, as the police have to take him away. Before he goes, he asks her for a hug, and breaks down in tears as they embrace.
