A stylish and morally complex thriller

Washington Post

An ultra-stylish and rousing cloak-and-dagger actioner set in 1920s Korea, when it was under Japanese occupation.

The Age of Shadows follows the cat-and-mouse game that unfolds between a group of resistance fighters trying to bring in explosives from Shanghai to destroy key Japanese facilities in Seoul, and Japanese agents trying to stop them. A talented Korean-born Japanese police officer, who was previously in the independence movement himself, is thrown into a dilemma and torn between duty and his instinct to support a greater cause.
