Synopsis


There is an old saying in China: “People die for wealth; birds die for food.” When someone discovers gold, people of different identities and classes fight to get the gold for themselves – brothers shoot each other, and friends murder each other. This is a parable about greed, exposure, satire, and reflection on the evil of human nature.
