Well Go USA Entertainment has released many Asian films in the U.S., including Chinese martial arts movie Ye Man 3 and Korean blockbusters Train to Busan and Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds.

It recently bought the rights to Korean director Lee Chang Dong’s Burning.

Furie, directed by Le Van Kiet, tells the story of a woman from the Mekong Detla whose daughter has been kidnapped. She embarks on a journey to find her against all odds and the bad guys.

The movie is certified 18+ due to its violence.

Furie will compete for the Grand Prix and Most Promising Talent Award in the Osaka Asian Film Festival next month.
