A riveting psycho-thriller that has been hailed as one of the best Hong Kong films of the year, revolving around a sinister murder case in which a social worker is compelled by an inner voice to kill his family and commit suicide. Shot in atmospheric noir style and with a taut, twisting narrative that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats, the film features a commanding lead performance by popular actress Stephy Tang, who was herself traumatised by the emotionally gruelling shoot and the film’s delving into the darkness of the human psyche.
About Glenn Chan
Soon after graduating from Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Chan had a one-year stint as an assistant producer but felt that an office job wasn’t for him. He then made his start in production as a director of photography (DP) for the third season of 13-part television series Heartlanders.
Chan would go on to direct several popular television programmes such as Yang Sisters, Fighting Spiders, and the first season of Code of Law. More recently, he directed five episodes of Titoudao, and was the director and DP for two episodes of HBO series Invisible Stories. Over the decades, Chan has worked as a director, editor, writer and DP for countless television programmes and commercials.
