About The Suicide Forecast

One Insurance-Sales King. Some Very Suspicious Customers.

Byeong-wu (RYOO Seung-bum, The Unjust) left the world of professional baseball behind and found success as an insurance salesman. But when one of his clients commits suicide – and there are questions about advice he provided to the insured – his own life spins out of control. As he prepares to defend himself against the pending criminal and internal investigations, he remembers selling life insurance to three suicide survivors, whose financial motives may be suspicious. Now Byeong-wu must scurry through the city in a frantic attempt to chase these people down. Can he convince them to change their plans – and that life may be worth living – before time runs out?

Includes the feature film plus video extras, all with on/off English subtitles!
