In this sexy crime-action thriller, Hyun-pil (Lee Byung-hun) heads up a sketchy multi-level marketing company with an extensive network. Intellectual Criminal Investigation Chief Jae-myung (Gang Dong-won) is on to the scam, however, and its deep ties to CEOs, politicians, and bureaucrats. Kim catches a break when he persuades the company's mastermind IT architect Jang-gun (Kim Woo-bin) to talk, but he soon hatches his own plan to betray his boss and make of with the company's huge secret fund. When Jin finally catches wind of the police dragnet closing in, he makes a desperate play to eliminate the pesky investigator for good. In a deadly cat-and-mouse game, who will end up the real master?
