In-gu (SONG Kang-ho) is a kingpin in a dark world. However, he's the sweetest husband and dad, full of love for his family. In-gu's only goal in life is to build a picturesque house out in the country and live a gracious life with his family. But, there's a problem. In-gu's daughter, going through puberty, is embarrassed about her dad's occupation and stays away from him. And his wife nags him constantly to get a stable job. Nonetheless, In-gu tries even harder to keep his syndicate together, thinking that the only way to be a good dad is to work hard and bring home the bacon. However, in reality, family matters get in the way of his business. To make things worse, In-gu faces a power struggle against an ambitious underling. "The Show Must Go On" is the winner of the 28th Blue Dragon Film Awards for Best Picture.
