You thought you knew kick-ass? Think again. Trained to be an assassin in Yanbian, China, from a very young age, Sook-hee has only ever known a life of killing. When South Korea’s Intelligence Agency captures her following a bloody gun-and-knife fight with an entire gang (whom she dispatches single-handedly), she is given the chance to use her deadly skills as a sleeper agent. After an intense rehabilitation and schooling process, she takes on a new name and identity. Soon, she begins to realize that the path of a killer is a not just a lonely road but also one that might be without return. Hope appears in the form of a young, handsome neighbor (Sung Joon). But a man from her violent past also makes an unexpected reappearance (Shin Ha-Kyun). This is not just another twisted Korean revenge thriller— it’s a reinvention of action cinema. Director Jung Byung-gil will be in attendance and will receive the NYAFF 2017 Daniel A. Craft Award for Excellence in Action Cinema. U.S. Premiere. All ticket holders invited to Closing Night Party!
