Carter is a South Korean action thriller directed by Jung Byung-Gil (the director of the 2017 movie The Villainess). The film revolves around the story of a man who wakes up with no recollection of who he is. However, a voice in his ear tells him that his name is Carter. Without knowing who to trust, the man listens to the orders in his ear not to get killed. The orders take him through a vital operation where he is chased both by the CIA and men from North Korea.
