Jung-ho (Kim Yoon-seok) is an antihero who gives a bad first impression. He's a former cop who got fired for bribery, and now runs a so-called door-to-door masseuse service, which is really a sordid call girl business.
Jung-ho is in a sour mood as one call girl vanishes after another. When Mi-jin (Seo Yeong-hee) disappears he notices that they've gone missing after getting a call from the same client, or cell phone number.
He suspects human trafficking and sets out to catch the culprit, grumbling how much money he had paid for the girls. "4885 ― that's you, right? If I catch you, you're dead", he says. Jung-ho does track him down, but it's far from heroic. He accidentally crashes into the guy while driving recklessly.
"I didn't traffic them I killed them. But that woman (Mi-jin) is probably alive", killer Ji Myeong-min (Ha Jeong-woo) "casually" mentions to the police. What's more, he can't seem to remember the exact number of his victims ― was it 10 or 12?
The police have hit the jackpot, as Myeong-min claims to be responsible for a bunch of unsolved serial murders. They try to put a case together in a desperate attempt to save face after a notorious incident that had literally dung-slapped the Seoul mayor.
While the cops are busy poking around in all the wrong places to retrieve evidence, Jung-ho, convinced that Mi-jin is still alive, embarks on his own investigation. It's because she is a valuable asset for business, not a sense of social responsibility.
But corrupt politics among the police and prosecutors, media play and other mishaps set the killer free. A breathtaking chase ensues.
