An atmospheric and tightly-scripted neo-noir mystery, hailed as one of the best Hong Kong films of the year
A riveting psycho-thriller that has been hailed as one of the best Hong Kong films of the year, revolving around a sinister murder case in which a social worker is compelled by an inner voice to kill his family and commit suicide. Shot in atmospheric noir style and with a taut, twisting narrative that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats, the film features a commanding lead performance by popular actress Stephy Tang, who was herself traumatised by the emotionally gruelling shoot and the film’s delving into the darkness of the human psyche.
