    • Once a skilled mercenary in the past, Yeo-hoon now leads a normal life with his debauchee brother Seong-hoon. One day he goes on an errand instead of his brother and enters an office to discover a man murdered. The killers also attack and chase Yeo-hoon who is shot and wheeled off to a hospital. The next day, the murdered man is identified as the president of SY Group and Yeo-hoon becomes the prime suspect.
      Yeo-hoon is admitted to the hospital where Tae-joon works as a medical resident. Tae-joon leads a happy life with his fully pregnant wife Leah. While on night duty, Tae-joon saves Yeo-hoon from the killers. The next day, Leah is kidnapped and Tae-joon receives a phone call demanding Yeo-hoon to be released from the hospital for Leah’s life.
      To save his wife, Tae-joon helps Yeo-hoon escape from the hospital. An ex-mercenary killer who accidentally gets involved in a murder case, and a doctor who accompanies him to save his abducted wife embark on a dangerous 36-hour pursuit.
