An ex-special agent CHA Tae-shik's only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi, who lives nearby. Her mother, Hyo-jeong smuggles drugs from a drug trafficking organization and entrusts Tae-shik with the product, without letting him know. The traffickers find out about her smuggling and kidnap both Hyo-jeong and So-mi. The gang promises to release them if Tae-shik makes a delivery for them, however it actually is a larger plot to eliminate a rival drug ring leader. When Hyo-jeon's disemboweled body is discovered, Tae-shik realizes that So-mi's life may also be in danger. Tae-shik becomes enraged at the prospect that So-mi may already be dead and prepares for a battle, putting his own life at risk. - Anonymous

In South Korea, Cha Tae-sik is the lonely and quiet owner of a pawnshop. His only friend is the girl Somee Jung, who leaves on the floor below with her reckless addicted mother Hyo-jeong that is a dancer in a nightclub. When Hyo steals a load of drug that belongs to the Chinese trafficker lord Mr. Oh Myng Kyu, she hides the drug in a camera case and pawns it in Tae-sik's pawnshop. But soon the drug dealers Jong Suk and his brother Man Suk discover that Hyo has stolen the drugs and they abduct Somee and Hyo to force her to tell where the drug is. Then the criminals use them to force Tae-sik to deliver the drug to Mr. Oh, promising to release Somee and Hyo after his assignment is accomplished. However, Jong and Man have called the police and are using Tae-sik to eliminate Mr. Oh, who is their rival. When Tae-sik finds the real intention of the brothers and the body of Hyo without her organs in the trunk of his car, he realizes that Somee is in danger and that Jong and Man Suk are not only drug dealers, but also organ traffickers. But what the criminals do not know is that Tae-sik is skilled and dangerous ex-special agent with a trauma in his past and that he will do anything to save Somee. Will he succeed? - Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
