Synopsis:
From acclaimed director Johnny To (The Mission, Fulltime Killer) comes a gripping action thriller set in the secret, elusive world of triad society. Election offers a rare insight into what it means to be a gangster in modern Hong Kong. The time has come, as it does every two years, for the senior members of Hong Kong's oldest Triad, The Wo Shing Society, to elect a new chairman. Although the elders of the triad, the Uncles, favour the calm and measured Lok (Simon Yam - Hong Kong Gigolo, Bullet in the Head) for the coveted position, unstable hothead Big D is convinced that he's the better candidate.
Big D (Tony Leung Ka Fai - Love Will Tear Us Apart, Farewell China) will stop at nothing to win the vote and an epic battle for power is joined. When Wo Shing's ancient symbol of leadership, the Dragon's Head Baton, goes missing, the ruthless power struggle escalates and the race to retrieve the Baton threatens to tear Wo Shing in two. Can Wo Shing balance their traditional brotherhood ways with the cut-throat modern world of 21st century business?
