World famous physician Kim Jun-young is rushing home from a U.N. conference to celebrate his daughter Eun jung’s birthday. Running late, he encounters a horrific auto accident with one passenger and one pedestrian dead. When he discovers the pedestrian is his daughter, he jolts awake back on a plane. But this is no dream. The same day repeats itself with the same tragic conclusion. With each successive effort to change the outcome, complications escalate. So does the tension. Don’t bother catching your breath. The next unpredictable twist will knock it out of you. Years ago, Dr. Kim made a highly unethical decision. Now the universe may be demanding justice. May 17th will repeat unless lives can be saved and retributions made, even if it takes eternity and every nerve the viewer has. This is A DAY unlike any other, a brilliantly original film combining a deeply emotional story of parental love with an unrelenting thrill ride that springs surprises to the very end. (In Korean with subtitles) —C.R.
