man is inexplicably kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years and his
wife is brutally murdered. On his release, he is given a wallet full
of money and a mobile phone. A stranger calls and asks him to try
and figure out why he was imprisoned. A girl appears and promises
to help him solve the enigma and seek vengeance for his cruel fate.
As the search progresses, the man finally comes face to face with
his kidnapper, who proposes a game: if the man discovers the reason
for his imprisonment, his kidnapper will kill himself. If not, then
the girl will be killed. He has only five days to unravel the mystery.
A Seoul businessman, after a night of drinking, disappears. Oh Dae-su finds himself in a room very similar to a motel room – a bed, a TV – but with a hole in the door through which his food is slid in, much like a jail cell. Periodically he’s gassed. The TV serves as his only contact with the world. He learns that he is wanted for the murder of his wife. He stays in this room, with no human contact for a year, then two, then three…. Finally, fifteen years later he is released, without any explanation of who had done this to him or why. He wants revenge.
