As an ace player, Ji-won, a former national team player of North Korea, joins the team. They still have hope as only five teams are participating this year. With the great victory of the first match, they feel the medal is closer. Yet, Ji-won meets her sister, left in North Korea alone, as a next opponent...

The only and last national ice hockey team now makes its first challenge.

Memoir of A Murderer

WON Shin-yun, 118 min, Crime/Thriller, in Korean with English subtitles, 2017

Rated 16

A former serial killer, Byung-su, gets diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The doctor tells him that it’s due to the aftereffects of the traffic accident 17 years ago; the same accident that stopped him from his killings and allowed him to live a normal life with his dear daughter.

When a series of murders occur near his town, Byung-su gets worried whether the killings are his doings during his memory lapses. But then, he comes across Tae-ju and instinctively realizes that he’s the serial killer. He reports this to the police, only to learn that Tae-ju is one. Byung-su tries to find firm evidence that Tae-ju is a psychopath, only to raise Tae-ju’s interest on him and his daughter. With his memory slipping, Byung-su must find a way to protect his daughter.

The movie has received the KOFRA Film Award for Best Actor.
