A war refugee struggles to live and keep his morals intact.
18 March 1999 | by (darkknight9@usa.net) – See all my reviews

A nicely played out drama of a war refugee (Yun Fat) as he yearns to make it to the US. Along the way he befriends a girl who also wants to go to the States. Sparks fly as the plot unfolds and Wu (Yun Fat) is forced to take matters into his own hands. The acting is downright stupendous! When you see Woo yuet dik goo si (1981), pay close attention to Wu's eyes. They sometimes say more than all of the bad subtitles are trying to.
