Lee Byung-hun plays the charismatic orchestrator of an elaborate ponzi scheme whose livelihood is threatened when Gang Dong-won’s ambitious investigator goes after him. The financial crimes unit attempts to turn the conman’s right hand man (Kim Woo-bin) in the organisation, but as they close in, cronyism and evasive maneuvers keep him out of handcuffs.


Just as capture seems imminent, the conman scampers away with his loot to the Philippines. An explosive chase ensues far outside the investigator’s jurisdiction when the crook’s political connections and the investigator’s rulebook must be traded in for good old guns, brawn and street smarts.
