The mean streets of China.

Raw violence and deadpan humour mark this groundbreaking indie gangster film from mainland China. Four young gangsters brazenly go up against established gangs and corrupt police in a bid to set themselves up as the top dogs of their small northeastern China city. As their initially successful plans start to unravel, the leader of the gang finds his loyalties and conscience getting in the way of the ruthlessness needed for absolute power.
