Set in the blue gray gloom of industrial China, this cunning noir focuses on two ruthless coal miners who drift from one illegal mine to another, working the perfect scam: they recruit a sucker who's eager for work, pass him off to the mine owners as a relative, kill him in the darkness of the hole, fake an accident to cover up their crime, and blackmail the mine owners to keep quiet about the tragedy. Their web starts to unravel when one of them takes pity on their latest mark, a naive kid whose older brother may have been one of their earlier victims. Director Li Yang adapted his compact script from a novel by Liu Qingbang. In Mandarin with subtitles.
