Decision to Leave
Everything starts with a fall. A man who was climbing a mountain is found dead, crashed on the ground. Tragedy? Suicide? Homicide? Detective Hae-jun investigates the mystery. He is a gentle man, happily married and devoted to his work, the youngest inspector in Busan; a city of unsolved cases where crime rides high.
Making the case even smokier is Seo-rae, the elusive, charismatic, and impossibly attractive Chinese wife of the deceased, whose charm creeps under Hae-jun’s skin. In ways he could have never envisioned, their broken conversations — deciphered through smartphone translations, her composed gestures, and mysterious allure — upset his life little by little, making him fall mentally and emotionally.
