Payback is a Bitch

An eye for an eye would make the whole world blind… So be it.  From the director of the critically acclaimed films Oldboy, and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, comes the highly anticipated Lady Vengeance, the third and final film in his inimitable Vengeance Trilogy.

After being wrongfully convicted of kidnapping and murdering a child, a beautiful young woman (Lee Young-ae) is imprisoned for 13 years.  While in prison she gains the respect and loyalty of her fellow cellmates, all the while plotting her vendetta on the man responsible (Oldboy’s Choi Min-Sik).  Upon her release, she sets in motion an elaborate plan of retribution, but what she discovers is a truth so horrifying, even revenge doesn’t seem punishment enough.
