"Achieves a happy marriage between commercial savvy and artistic integrity in its hard-hitting depiction of Seoul as a city of corruption." - Hollywood Reporter

A massive critical and commercial success in South Korea, The Unjust is a complex crime thriller, set against the background of police and corporate corruption in contemporary Seoul.

A spate of unsolved serial killings has the Seoul public outraged. Facing mounting public pressure, the police initiate a plan to set someone up to take the fall for the crime - unleashing a chain of events that finds the city's powerful and corrupt interests pitted against one another.

Directed by popular genre director Ryoo Seung-wan (Die Bad, MIFF 2001; Crying Fist, MIFF 2005), The Unjust blends cynical social observations with dark humour, tragedy and distinctively Korean action.
