Royal guard and skilled swordsman Tae-yul has long been in hiding and content with a quiet life of seclusion with his daughter Tae-ok. However, their peaceful existence is threatened when an old injury causes Tae-yul’s eyesight to fail. When Tae-ok is captured and taken by slave trader Gurutai (The Raid’s Joe Taslim), Tae-yul is left with little choice but to raise his sword one last time in order to save his daughter. The Swordsman is a wonderful blend of epic fight scenes and heartfelt drama that is sure to have you hooked right up until its exhilarating climax.
