The day starts as usual for Seong-gyoo, a bank branch manager. He wakes up, have breakfast while making some professional decisions over the food and gets his kids into the car, ready to drop them off at school. 

Hye-in, the daughter, notices a weird smell inside the car, to which Seong-gyoo ignores. While driving to the school, they hears a ringing tone from the glove compartment. Seong-gyoo picks up the phone and when he realises that it belongs to neither of his family members, he ignores the call.

The second time it rings, he decides to take the call - the decision that changes the course of the day for the whole family members in the car.

The caller tells him that he has rigged the seat with a bomb, which will detonate if he leaves the seat. At first, he thinks lightly of the warning but when he sees there is a bomb underneath his seat, he takes the caller seriously after that. And when a car of his colleagues (who receives the same call) explodes in front of him and hurts his youngest, he understands how serious the caller is. 

The caller instructs him to not drop his kids at school, as the caller will detonate the bomb if any of them exits the car. Then he demands to have a huge amount of cash to be delivered to him in exchange for their lives. 

He calls everyone he knows in the bank to have the amount transfer to the caller. As time draws closer, he finds it harder to gather the amount that the caller ask

Will Seong-gyoo and his family survive the ordeal? Why did the caller ask for cash from Seong-gyoo?
