Old Boy main image

In an old building, between floors seven and eight, a man has been incarcerated in a locked room for the last ten years. With no idea as to why he was taken in the first place, nor where he is, the man has spent the last decade alone with no contact to the outside world except for the television in the corner. One day, a group of men in dark suits burst into his cell and announce that his sentence is over before stuffing him in a suitcase and dumping him in a park. Free to do as he wishes, the man has just one thing on his mind: revenge against those who ruined his life. Now with the perfectly honed body and a festering anger gained from his time alone, he has become a lethal fighter hell bent on finding out exactly what the reason for his imprisonment was, the people behind it, and making them pay for it.
