Synopsis


A Touch Of Sin was inspired by four shocking (and true) events that forced the world’s fastest growing economy into a period of self-examination.

An angry miner, enraged by widespread corruption in his village, decides to take justice into his own hands. A rootless migrant discovers the infinite possibilities of owning a firearm. A young receptionist, who dates a married man and works at a local sauna, is pushed over the edge by an abusive client. And a young factory worker goes from one discouraging job to the next, only to face increasingly degrading circumstances.
