Korean director Hae-sung Song's remake of John Woo's 1986 action blockbuster. Leaving his younger brother Cheol (Kim Kang-woo) behind, Kim Hyeok (Jin-mo Ju) flees North Korea with his best friend Lee Yeong-choon (Seung-heon Song), and sets himself up as an illegal arms smuggler in South Korea. After being double-crossed in an arms deal, Hyeok is caught and spends three years in jail. On his release, and still guilt-ridden over leaving his brother behind, he sets out to seek a reconciliation with Cheol, now a police officer, only to have his advances rebuffed. Now, as Hyeok tries to go straight, he finds himself on a collision course with Cheol as the two opposing brothers get caught up in a gang war that threatens to engulf them both.
