A rogue cop must disengage himself from drug trafficking or lose his marriage forever. When he chooses to act, he finds out life sometimes does not offer a second chance.
Francis Lau is a published poet and filmmaker whose work sets out to explore the themes of displacement, memory, guilt and the postlapsarian desire for redemption.
