Storyline

Jeong Yoon is a caring wife and mother and a sensitive woman who finds herself plunged into a legal ordeal thousands of miles from home. After years of planning, she and her husband Jong Bae open an auto body repair shop, only to see everything they've worked for stripped away when a loan Jong Bae had guaranteed defaults. Facing financial despondency, the couple gets into a vicious fight about money, sending Jeong Yeon away, leaving only a cryptic note saying she'll be back in a few days. When she turns up looking nervous at Orly Airport in Paris with over 30 kilograms of cocaine in her luggage, it is the beginning of a globe-spanning nightmare that began with an old friend and a tempting proposition.

Trivia

In order to achieve maximum realism in telling the true story of a housewife accused of drug trafficking in Martinique, the film was shot in the Caribbean-a first for a Korean movie-and two other countries, Korea, and France. It is filled with locations never before attempted in Korean cinema, such as Dominica's Najayo Prison, Paris' Orly Airport, the Korean Embassy to France, and the Caribbean. The film staff invested vast amounts of time in finding locations and obtaining permits. For example, it took nearly two years to secure the permit to shoot in the Najayo women's prison, and filming took place on a tight 6-day schedule. See more »

incredible movie!
21 December 2015 | by Song-Ji-LiuSee all my reviews

This is an incredible movie! The story itself it very dark because it is based on true events (and partly fictional). So the story in this movie is unique. But because of the fact that it is based on true events it will emotionally move you. I cried, sat on the tip of my seat, held my breath and I could feel the despair and anger. The cast did an amazing job. It was almost like they were the ones who had been trough this all. Their emotions were acted in an excellent way. The music they had chosen fit every scene.

I think everyone should watch this movie. It has suspense, drama, romance and so much more. It is definitely not a waste of your time, please watch this movie!
