kidnapper main

Awards won:

Lim, a struggling and obnoxious 40-year-old taxi-driver, is a complete failure. His wife left him years ago and his only son Wei Siang is frequently neglected. Mistaken for a rich man’s son, Wei Siang is kidnapped at a shopping mall one day and held for an enormous ransom. Thus begins one father’s relentless quest to get his son back. With only 36 hours to come up with $1 million, he had to give up everything in his life, only to discover that the nefarious kidnapper wants even more money. Unable to raise the second ransom, Lim descends into madness as grief and self-doubt overwhelms him. His own morals are threatened when he flirts with the dark side as he becomes desperate.
