The air I breathe
3 available of 5 items

A film based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. Four very different people teetering on the edge of desperation are unexpectedly linked by their destinies. Filled with surprising twists and turns, this suspenseful, action-filled drama employs both brutal violence and aching poetry in a moving exploration of the search for happiness in a gritty urban world.
