Tunnel

Synopsis:

From the director of A Hard Day comes a story of hope and survival. Starring seasoned actor Ha Jung-woo, the film is based on the novel Tunnel by So Jae-won.

It was just another ordinary day for car salesman Jung-su (Ha), who is returning home from work, until a poorly constructed tunnel he was driving through suddenly collapses. Barely escaping death, he is nevertheless trapped inside his car and surrounded by tons of rubble.  The only supplies he has with him are a mobile phone, two bottles of drinking water and a birthday cake for his daughter.

An emergency response team arrives to rescue Jung-su but with the exception of team leader, Dae-gyung (Oh Dal-su), they are disorganised and sloppy. Meanwhile, Jung-su waits in anticipation. As he accepts his reality and adapts to it, he begins to find happiness in small things.

Each day, Dae-gyung and Jung-su communicate by phone and Dae-gyung tries his best to comfort Jung-su and give him hope. As another series of blunders delays the rescue operation and threatens Jung-su’s life, he now finds himself in an even worse situation, for the phone is now dead and he is unable to communicate with anyone. 

In the outside world, people begin to wonder whether Jung-su is still alive and they slowly turn away from the tragedy. Will their indifference lead to his demise? Or will his curiosity and positive spirit help him survive, despite the bleakest of circumstances?
