OLD BOY

At the end of the 1980s, Oh Dae-Soo, a father with no history, was kidnapped one day in front of his home. Kidnapped for several years in a private cell, his only connection to the outside world is a television. Through this television, he learns of his wife’s murder, of which he is the main suspect. Despair of being sequestered for no apparent reason is followed by an inner vengeful rage that allows the hero to survive. He was released 15 years later, still without explanation. Oh Dae-Soo is then contacted by the one who seems to be responsible for his misfortunes, who offers him to discover who took him and why. The nightmare continues for the hero.
