When the news that the head of the feared Russian organized crime, the Vori v Zakone (Thieves in Law), died in a ferry crash in Hong Kong, reaches his second in command in Moscow, Alexander Orlov rushes to Hong Kong to meet with Hu Wong, the son of the Dragon's head, in order to renegotiate the future collaboration with the Triads in the region.
He soon discovers that all is not what it seems and that codes of honour and rules of the underworld can be easily rewritten to suit one's need.
A set of events unravels and puts to the test the long lasting loyalties originally born in the Soviet prisons. Keeping your friends close but your enemies closer may find its true meaning in "Vor: Trust Me I'm A Thief", an action film that uses Hong Kong as a backdrop to explore the modern mindset of the underworld, in which old-school believers in the Thieves' Code get challenged by new generations of criminals driven by money and power rather than loyalty and honour.
