After years of military service, Makdong returns home to find his family (and the family house) in disrepair. To do the right thing and get them back on track, he becomes a gangster.

An early film of the Korean New Wave, and Lee's feature debut, this striking film impresses with its strong characterisations, sense of social justice and visual style; alternating tenderness and violent flourishes.

The film was a hit with both audiences and critics - achieving excellent local box office returns and winning a Dragon and Tigers award at the 1997 Vancouver Film Festival.
