Zalimliğimiz ve para hırsımız yüzünden birbirimize inancımızı kaybetmiş olabilir miyiz? Hepimiz aslında Tanrı’nın merhametini mi bekliyoruz? Tefeciler adına çalışan zalim bir adam, patronlarının alacaklarını her ne yöntemle olursa olsun toplamaya alışmıştır. Ailesi ya da dert edeceği sevdikleri olmadığı gibi işini sınırsız kötülükle yapabilme yolunda ne korkusu ne de tereddüdü vardır. Bir gün karşısına bir kadın çıkar ve annesi olduğunu iddia ederek yıllar önce onu terkettiği için özür diler. Adam başta kadına inanmaz; herhangi bir anne hatırası yoktur. Ama kadına bağlandıkça onun korkunç bir sır sakladığını anlar. Kore’de şiddet sahneleri yüzünden şimdiden büyük tartışma yaratan Acı, ilk gösterimini Eylül’de Venedik Film Festivali’nde gerçekleştirdi.
