Every day, thousands of people risk their lives in China's dangerous and often illegal mines. Song and Tang are two of them, but they have a plan--one that involves murder and extortion. But having won the trust of young Luan, the two have a crisis of conscience that leads to an unexpected turn. Li blurs definitions of right and wrong in this chilling tale of Chinese workers trying to get by any way they can. Winner, Silver Bear, 2003 Berlin Film Festival.
