Zhou Zenong (Hu Ge) meets the mysterious, beautiful Liu Aiai (Gwei Lun-mei) in a dark underpass. Liu conveys the message that there is a price on Zhou’s head after a cop was shot and killed in a chase following a gang brawl. Zhou has the notion that, if he is to go down for murder, his wife might be able to benefit from a reward, while Liu sees an opportunity to escape her seedy circumstances. A feverish cat and mouse chase plays out in crime-ridden, neon-lit environs. Featuring a number of inventive, bloody set pieces, this masterful modern noir is packed with darkly delicious thrills.
