This line of work is not for you.

Excuse me.

Brother Ma, you're back.

Place your bets.


He's cheating!


It's OK, all settled.

Please, pay up.

That really hurt.

That'll cost you double.

If I pay you double,

who's going to pay me double?

So you won't pay?

I can find my own way home.

Brother Ma.

What are you doing out so late?

My father sold my sister.

And with the money left over...

I want you to take me to Shanghai

so I can buy her back.

She's only 15. Please take me.

We have to buy her back.

What are you doing here?

Why do you still live here?

This place is not fit for anyone.

What's on your mind?

Do you remember Hu?

He really respects you.

He's prepared to pay

So what do you think?

- You change your mind quickly.

- I didn't want to. But...

But what?

- He's paying well.

- Do you want to risk it?

- Sure.

- What are you waiting for?

I can't do it on my own.

Come on, help me.

I'm tired, I want to sleep.

Well, why not? You're not busy.

Not busy? I'm leaving

in the next few days.

He's something else!

Yao Jie.


When do you have

to give Hu your answer?

- Then you agree?!

- Come on.

Move, go away.

I've got something to ask you.

Have you seen anyone

that looks like a scholar?

What sort of scholar?

He wears a long grey gown

and a grey scarf

and he's about this tall.

There's lots of people like that

in the village.

He likes gambling and he cheats.

Oh, him!

You should have said.

So you want information?

You know what to do.


- Are you going to tell us?

- OK, I'll talk.

- Where is he?

- He left two days ago.

Let him go.

So we need one more person?

Yes, he's essential,

he's an explosive expert.

It won't kill you, back to work.

What are you doing?

Do you want to get fired?
