踏血寻梅 PORT OF CALL

Drama

Story:

This is a story about three people, based on a true event – a murder and dismemberment that happened in Hong Kong.

Jiamei Wang has moved to Hong Kong from Dongguan, China two years ago. Desperate to become financially independent from her mother and step-father, she ends up becoming a "compensated date". Chi-chung Ting, a truck driver who had just been brutally dumped, finds Jiamei online. They communicate with each other via text message and become friends right away. They share their background stories, and talk about everything from love to hate, from life to death.

On the day of the murder, Jiamei and Chi-chung finally meet in person. In the room, they play, indulge in ketamine and really enjoy themselves. Finally, they go to the bed. During sex, Jiamei tells Chi-chung she wants to die. Chi-chung squeezes her neck until she passes away.

Ching Sir, in charge of investigating the case, is a quirky police officer. When he investigates a case, he often ignores the details of the case itself but rather researches extensively on the personality of the people involved. Although he already has enough evidence to charge Chi-chung Ting, he wants to get to know Ting and Jiamei Wang better. He wants to look at our times with his heart. What exactly happened? He wishes to find out the real reason behind the incident, to prove that human nature is not evil, to shine a light onto the darkness.
