From one of the most exciting filmmakers in the world comes this dazzling Gangster epic, a sprawling tale of loyalty, love and survival.
In a bleak industrial city, young dancer Qiao falls in love with a mobster named Bin. When Bin’s boss is killed, he takes on leadership of the ‘Jianghu’, a brotherhood of honourable criminals. But the old codes of honour are out of fashion, and when Bin is attacked by a new generation of gangsters, Qiao is forced to make a seismic choice.
