A young judge is known for making tough and uncompromising decisions. But, his carefully ordered life is thrown into chaos after his wife is brutally murdered. Apparently, a former criminal, called "The Chaser," has a grudge against him for a past ruling. It soon becomes apparent that the case is far from closed, as a reporter contacts Suk Hyun, informing him that his life appears to be following the exact same path of another judge, some 30 years ago - a prediction which means that Su Young will shortly escape from jail to murder him and his daughter. With the help of prosecutor Gang Sung, the judge desperately tries to stop this from happening whilst uncovering the dark truth behind the death of his unfortunate predecessor.
