With middle age creeping up on him, the life and achievements of amiable, mid-level Korean gangster Kang In-gu are about due for an objective assessment. He’s certainly not in top streetfighting form anymore, and the young thugs under his command aren’t exactly an elite troop of criminals. Moreover, his wife is running out of patience with his career choice and the lack of social finesse it entails, and his dearly loved daughter is embarrassed beyond words by her often uncouth dad (but then, aren’t all teenagers?). Kang’s dream is to buy one of those impressive, Western-style suburban homes, in which domestic peace may at last blossom.
But his headaches at home are matched by even more sinister developments in the criminal underworld he inhabits. Kang is highly esteemed by his boss, who favours him over his own brother -- an underling to Kang, seething with resentment. A conflict with another gang puts Kang and his childhood buddy on opposite sides of the fence. The fact is, Kang just wants everything to work out right for everyone –- and we all know which road is paved with good intentions… the road to hell.
