About the film:

World Premiere, 2021 Berlin Film Festival

Hong Kong is rocked by a series of brutal murders: a ruthless killer preys on women and leaves the severed hands of his victims all over the city. Detective Cham and his colleague Will are assigned to the case.

When they cross paths with young To during their investigation, Cham’s world falls apart. The girl is responsible for a terrible accident that once destroyed Cham’s life. Between his hatred for To and the serious consequences of their shared past, the experienced cop almost loses sight of the goal, until it’s almost too late to save the only person who can save him too.

“One of the most anticipated crime thrillers of the past few years”

—Pete Volk, Polygon
