Salaryman Ido arrives home from an ordinary day at work to find it barricaded. He discovers that his wife and son are held hostage by an escapee from a nearby prison. The policemen are apathetic, the TV reporters are grating. As pressure mounts and time runs out, Ido embarks on a journey of revenge that would change his family forever…
