a story about Hong Kong...
16 December 1999 | by freakusSee all my reviews

A group of soldiers are told by the English government that their services are no longer required and are basically left to fend for themselves in HK with no real skills. They drift for awhile and eventually turn to crime and fail at that as well. It's a hopeful tale about human life caught in a society that seems overwhelming and uncaring from the most powerful governments to the lowest knife-wielding street gangs.
