Can, Phong and Cha-lee might be ambitious stuntmen, but their career has long since hit rock bottom. However, it’s when their friend and wannabe manager U-Gin reels in a promising new job offer that things truly go south. When they arrive at the wrong address the four friends burst in on low-life Eddie and his sleazy gang of thugs. Seizing the opportunity, Eddie takes Phong hostage and blackmails the remaining three into running a dangerous errand. Their mission: To seek the whereabouts of a secret safe owned by Berlin’s underworld kingpin Gabriel and to deliver Eddie its contents. The terms: They either succeed within 24 hours – or Phong dies. Chickening out is not an option, and so the three friends tumble head over heels into a relentless scavenger hunt, attracting the attention of a tenacious cop and, ultimately, of Gabriel himself.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN BERLIN is a fast-paced action comedy that pays homage to the action flicks of the 1980s and 1990s. Featuring action choreography by martial artists Can Aydin, Phong Giang and Cha-lee Yoon from REEL DEAL, it’s the first theatrical martial arts motion picture ever to be domestically produced in Berlin, Germany’s vibrant capital.
