Movie Info

Character actor Kent Cheng takes a turn behind the camera with this gritty crime melodrama. Wayne (Kenny Ho) is a spoiled rich kid whose churlishness lands him with a brief stint in jail. There he befriends Henry (Andy Lau), a working-class kid spending four years in the clink for manslaughter. When Wayne is released, he goes to Britain to study law. Yet Henry, once in the real world, has fewer options. He tries to make a go at teaching school, but his past soon catches up with him. Vicious gangster Charlie (William Ho) demands that Henry fork over 100,000 dollars as compensation for killing one of his men. Once Charlie starts attacking Henry's family, Henry joins Charlie's gang hoping to ameliorate the situation. Soon Henry becomes not only a feared criminal himself, but a serious smack addict. Wayne returns from Britain and tries to straighten out his friend. When Henry gets framed for murder, Wayne is forced to defend him in court. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
