When a contagious and deadly virus suddenly strikes Malaysia, a Hong Kong journalist is tipped off by a colleague that its release may not be accidental. That touches off an investigation that entangles journalists, cops, a corrupt pharmaceutical company run by a wealthy, feuding family, and an international hacking group with shadowy motives. This film from the prolific and talented Herman Yau—his Shock Wave was the hit of last year’s festival—is, in the words of South China Morning Post film critic Edmund Lee, “A twisty and relentlessly frenetic narrative that rarely fails to entertain.” (Dir.: Herman Yau, Hong Kong/Malaysia, 2018, 103 min., DCP, Cantonese, English, Malay, Tamil, and Mandarin with English and Chinese subtitles)
