Gu-nam is a cab driver who leads a pitiful life in Yanji City in Yanbian prefecture, a region between North Korea, China and Russia, where about 800,000 Korean-Chinese known as Joseonjok reside. His wife went to Korea to earn some money 6 months ago, but he hasn’t heard from her since. He plays mah-jong to make some extra cash, but his life only becomes more complicated and pathetic.

One day he meets a hitman named Myun-ga and receives a proposal to turn his life around by repaying his debt, and reuniting with his wife. All for a price of one hit. But everything will go wrong...
