When unthinkable disaster strikes, two strangers become the only hope of thousands of holiday revelers in the heart-pounding, action-packed drama THE TOWER (타워, 2012), burning up DVD July 2 from CJ Entertainment America.
It’s Christmas Eve at Seoul’s ultra-luxurious, 108-story, residential high-rise, Tower Sky, and the annual White Christmas gala is planned once again to dazzle the elite tenants and their VIP guests.
Building manager Dae-ho, a single father, reluctantly disappoints his young daughter again, cancelling plans to work the elegant event. Kitchen manager Yoon-hee, who has a secret crush on him, offers to babysit. Respected fire chief Young-ki has finally agreed to a date night with his long-suffering wife and the extravagant gathering is the perfect venue.
The holiday revelry is in full swing on a truly magical and unforgettable evening when unthinkable disaster strikes. Out of the reach of help, chaos and panic erupt. Now two strangers, Dae-ho and Young-ki, must summon the strength and courage to save thousands… but at what cost?
THE TOWER is presented in widescreen (aspect ratio: 2:35.1) and 5.1 digital sound with English subtitles. Special features include “Making Of: The Tower” and “Making Of: CG” featurettes; deleted scenes; and trailers.
