A Seoul businessman, Dae-su, with a wife and daughter is locked up in a strange, private “prison.” No one will tell him why he’s there or who his jailer is, but he is kept in reasonably comfortable quarters and has a TV. While watching TV, he discovers he has been framed for his wife’s murder and realizes that, during one of the occasions in which he’s knocked out by gas, someone has drawn blood from him and left it at the scene of the crime. The imprisonment lasts for 15 years until one day when Dae-su finds himself deposited on a high-rise roof. He’s determined to discover the mysterious enemy who had him locked up.
