2008's international box office sensation The Chaser is being remade by the team that brought you 'The Departed'. But there's only ever one original.
Ex-detective-turned-pimp Jung-ho's night is getting messy. Convinced his girls are running out on him, he sends one of his last remaining girls, Mi-jin, on a desperate last minute job. Too late, however, he makes a bone-chilling discovery: this customer's home is where all his missing girls were last sent.
Fearing the worst, Jung-ho's relentless pursuit of Mi-jin ends in a terrifying chase through the city streets after a car crash throws a blood spattered suspect into his path. Calling in old favours, Jung-ho is certain he has caught this ruthless killer. But despite a disturbing confession, the lack of evidence means this cold-hearted psychopath might soon be freed by the bureaucratic police force.
Jung -ho, armed with few clues but filled with street-smart and savage determination, has just 12 hours to find the killer's lair, before he is set free to continue his reign of terror.
