Director Dante Lam will be in attendance
Hong Kong’s biggest local hit of 2013 is an involving action-drama set in the world of competitive mixed martial arts. Nick Cheung reteams with director Dante Lam and delivers a career-best performance as a disgraced ex-boxing champion who is chased out of Hong Kong by debt collectors. He starts afresh in Macau, where he meets two fellow damaged souls, a struggling single mother and a rookie fighter (Eddie Peng), who is ready to risk everything to win a lucrative MMA tournament. Three down-on-their-luck ordinary people turn their lives around in this tale about rolling with the punches and accepting life’s bitter blows.
