Jang Ok-ju is a former bodyguard for VIP clients who discovers that her best friend Choi Min-hee has died and her last wish for Ok-ju is that she should finish a sex trafficker named Choi Pro as he had victimized Min-hee by filming her and extorting money due to the video.
Ok-ju searches for Choi through his internet profile and finds his address, where she stalks Choi for a while and tricks him into taking her back to the motel where Min-hee was filmed.
Ok-ju fights Choi and brutally injures him at the motel, but Ok-ju is forced to escape as Choi’s gang attacks her. Ok-ju and a high school student (who wants to escape from the traffickers) forge a new plan, and Ok-ju reaches out to an old friend to find weapons in order to strategize the best way to attack the gang.
Choi’s gang leader orders him to find Ok-ju and bring her to him. Choi tracks down and attacks Ok-ju, who later flees through the window.
Choi reports to the leader that he killed Ok-ju and buried her in the mountains. Ok-ju visits the gang leader and kills him, where she fights with other gangsters until one of them reveals about Choi’s location.
Ok-ju finds Choi and finally disarms him; she takes Choi to a beach and savagely burns him to death. Ok-ju arrives at Choi’s house and takes away all the videos that contain the filming of the victims, where she drives off into the sunset.
