Summary: A missing police gun is connected to a series of recent heists and murders. Its owner, WONG, vanished earlier while pursuing a suspect in the mountains. His partner, CHI-WAI, miraculously returned unharmed and the hot shot Regional Crime Unit Inspector, HO, is in charge of the investigation. HO knows the only chance he has in cracking the case is to ask for help from his mentor/former boss BUN, a gifted criminal profiler now living in seclusion with his wife MAY. BUN puts himself in the victim's place, literally, and his unorthodox approach has put doubt in HO's mind who feels betrayed when BUN's investigation goes beyond his imagination. What begins as a quest for answers has now taken a schizophrenic turn where truth and lies, reality and delusions intertwine...(IFC First Take)
