With the news of a major tunnel collapse, South Korea is thrown into panic and the government rushes to put together a rescue plan. Dae-kyung (OH Dal-su), leader of the rescue team, tries various means to access the tunnel, but work proceeds at a frustratingly slow pace. Meanwhile, Jung-soo’s wife Se-hyun (Doona BAE) sends him messages of support through the only radio station he can hear under the tunnel, and keeps up hope that her husband will return alive.Kim Seong-Hun's TUNNEL is an intimate action film that will have you holding your breath for two low-cell-phone-battery hours.
Beginning with its enthusiastic reception in the Director’s Fortnight section of the 67th Cannes Film Festival, Kim Seong-hun’s previous film, A HARD DAY (2014) garnered accolades around the world. Kim’s sharp insight into everyday reality and his great directorial skills are now channeled into his new feature, TUNNEL.
