The Stool Pigeon

Directed by Dante Lam

UK Premiere

For cop Don Lee, criminal informants are his bread and butter and he will go to any lengths to ensure that they give him the knowledge that enables him to make arrests. However, when he forces Ghost, a young street car racer, to inform on a notoriously dangerous gang leader he slowly begins to question his own actions. Hong Kong director Dante Lam delivers a complex and action packed tale of a police officer increasingly burdened by the morality of his job and struggling with his conscience.
