Detective Seo Do-cheol (Hwang Jung-min) is tough and merciless when it comes to crime. But while investigating a high-profile case, Seo finds out that arrogant young millionaire Jo Tae-oh (Yoo Ah-in) - third-generation heir to a powerful conglomerate - is abusing his power and innocent people behind the scenes. Jo always escapes with his wealth and connections, but this time he's the target of a veteran in relentless pursuit of justice.

Veteran director Ryoo Seung-wan (The Berlin FileThe Unjust) had another huge success with Veteran (2015), drawing 13.4 million admissions to become the third highest grossing film in Korean cinema history. Veteran also won the Casa Asia Award at the Sitges Film Festival and earned Ryoo the Best Director prize from the PaekSang Arts Awards, Blue Dragon Film Awards, and Korean Association of Film Critics.

In Korean with English subtitles, 123 min. For mature audiences.
