On Christmas Eve at Tower Sky, a luxury building in central Seoul, residents and VIP guests have gathered for a lavish holiday party -- but disaster is brewing. Single father Lee Dae-ho (Kim Sang-Kyung) is forced to cancel plans with his daughter and work the event, while Yoon-hee (Son Ye-Jin), the building's restaurant manger and secret love of Dae-ho, offers to help. Meanwhile, veteran fire chief Kang Young-ki (Sol Kyung-Gu) is about to enjoy a quiet date night with his wife. Everyone's calm is suddenly shattered when the party's stunt helicopter collides with the building, setting off a deadly chain reaction. Dae-ho and Young-ki will need all their strength to save the thousands trapped inside.
Director Kim Ji-Hoon's 2013 The Tower set a new standard for visual effects in Korea cinema, with a high-tension disaster film that touches on familiar Korean themes of family and duty. In Korean with English subtitles, 121 minutes.
