Former British colonial army Kwan Chiu (Gordon Lam) now makes money as a freelancer for local gangs. In particular, he is a middleman between Hong Kong Boss Tai (Ben Yuen) and Taiwanese triad leader Pickle (To Yin-gor), an arrangement that looks set to earn him a handsome payoff. However, things are complicated by the appearance of small-time thief Mani (Bipin Karma), who has stolen drugs from Tai’s men and ends up seeking refuge in Kwan’s apartment. Mani agrees to share a cut of his profits with Kwan in return for protection, which the ex-soldier accepts, compensation should the big deal fail. Which it does, with Kwan being held responsible. Chan Kin-Long’s neo-noir combines the suspense of a gangster thriller – replete with a stunning climactic set-piece – with piercing social drama to impressive effect with his feature directorial debut.
