Hailed as one of the best Hong Kong films of the year, this riveting psycho-thriller revolves 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 endured an emotionally gruelling shoot and some very dark subject matter.
