In the year 1925, Chun Man‐duk, who was once a well‐known top shooter in all of Korea, no longer hunts and lives in a hut in Mt. Jirisan with his teenage son, Seok. Meanwhile, the village is astir as Japanese soldiers arrive, seeking the last living tiger in Korea, the feared and respected Lord of Mt. Jirisan. Fascinated with tiger skins, Japanese dignitary Maejono is determined to get his hands on the great tiger before his return home, and pushes the Japanese soldiers and Korean hunters at Mt. Jirisan. When no trace of the great tiger can be found, Gu‐kyung and Ryu, an officer of the Japanese army, try to bring Man‐duk in on the hunt as their last resort.
