Synopsis

A series of gruesome murders takes the city by storm. Each crime is elaborately staged and executed with high level of skillfulness. All murders have something in common: The victims are subjects of recent media controversy when their callous, selfish wrongdoings cause the death of others. The way they were killed also resembles the condition of their misdemeanor. The media immediately labels it an act of vigilante justice and the whole town becomes enthralled with the serial killer. People are anticipating his next act of vigilantism. Police detective Nam (Liu Shishi), who’s been assigned to the case, is practically running out of leads and time. She enlists the help of ex-cop/forensic expert Mu (Deng Chau), who quickly discovers invisible traces of evidence left at the crime scenes. Together, they are wasting no time in hunting the killer before the next murder occurs. At the same time, the serial killer (Ethan Juan) has chosen his next victim. He is plotting a live streaming of the murder so that people can decide the fate of the victim online. Seeing himself as the guardian of the city, he believes true justice can be served only by transferring power from the law enforcement and giving it back to the people.
