L.U.C.A. lief 2021 im Festival Watchroom.

Ji Oh has no idea who he is or what is happening to him. But suddenly he has inexplicable superpowers and extraordinary fighting skills. And pursuers whose motivations remain unclear for a long time: A group of scientists operating in secret in search of the perfect human, and an equally extraordinarily empowered special agent. At Ji Oh's side: the young policewoman Gu Reum, who is trying to solve the mystery of her parents' violent deaths. 

After South Korean cinema has long had a reputation as one of the best in the world, with "Oldboy" and "Parasite," among others, that conviction has now extended to the streaming age thanks to "Squid Game." Cast with some of the biggest stars of the scene there and staged in the usual slick and stylish look, the twelve-part series kicks off a fascinating new sci-fi universe between fantasy, superhero drama and augmentation mania.
