In 1986, a series of murders and rapes plague a village in rural South Korea, with its continued investigation making up the majority of Memories of Murder’s story. Throughout this case’s progression, we see a veteran local detective (Song Kang-ho) and younger detective (Kim Sang-kyung) brought in from Seoul to help crack the case. They butt heads with each other, and their co-workers, as they face one dead end after another. As the clues start to fall into place, the work of these men threatens to consume and transform them into totally different people than when they started.
