A man falls from a mountain peak to his death. The detective in charge of the investigation, Hae-joon (Park Hae-il), comes to meet the dead man’s wife Seo-rae (Tang Wei). When she becomes a suspect, Hae-joon finds himself slowly developing an interest in her.
Among the most influential directors of the last twenty years, Park Chan-wook returned to Cannes for the fourth time earlier this year with Decision to Leave, which followed his GrandPrix winner Oldboy (2003), Thirst (2009), and The Handmaiden (2016). Park was also put on the map internationally with Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002), Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005), Stoker (2013, starring Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska), and most recently his acclaimed TV series The Little Drummer Girl (2018, starring Florence Pugh).
