Jung-soo, the manager of a car company, is on his way home when the poorly- constructed tunnel he is driving through collapses, leaving him trapped.

The country is thrown into panic and the government rushes to put together a rescue plan, but public opinion becomes divided over whether to proceed with a rescue effort that seems doomed to fail.
