Film description

Fighting for her job at a Hong Kong bank, Teresa must increase the sales of high-risk shares, even though she knows that only the bank will benefit, not the buyers. Inspector Cheung, a dedicated policeman, is forced to deal with his wife’s ill-advised credit loans. A gangster named Buzzard forgoes his profession’s usual codes in trying to make a quick profit on the financial markets. As a global economic crisis reaches its apogee, the protagonists’ fates intertwine and must make a pivotal decision that will test their personal morality.

Set in Hong Kong’s narrow streets, director Johnnie To’s economic crime thriller pits human values against the value of money. What’s the going rate today?
