Undercover Chinese cop Xin is on a secret international mission when a surprise raid puts him in a remote jungle prison that plays by its own rules. Here, the visitors are wealthy thrill seekers, the guards are hostile puppet masters and the prisoners are simply pawns in a high stakes game of human hunting human. It started as just another bad day for the do-gooder cop. That day gets a whole lot worse when the diabolical Warden singles Xin out for death at the hands of affluent hunters looking for the world’s ultimate kill. The film was presented at the BFI London Film Festival 2018, Busan International Film Festival 2018 and Hawaii International Film Festival 2018.
