Based on a shocking case in real life, this story begins when a young man partners with his friend to murder and dismember his parents. Pleading not guilty to the crime, defense attorneys face each other, as the defendants scoff at the situation and heated debates erupt inside the jury room, where nine jurors grapple with the truth. In The Sparring Partner Ho Cheuk-tin sets himself a formidable challenge in this directorial debut through crafting a complex and multi-layered narrative with surprising twists and turns.
