(Shilong, Dongguan)

Unforgettable days

Faded impressions of home

In your diary you said I'm like

an infatuated child, looking at the world

But that sky above the canopy-

wasn't it the same back then?

That day I didn't understand your words

Now I continue making a busy life for myself

But I dream of being a simple person again

(Wang Jiamei)

Sis, no more. I'm on a diet

You're already so thin

and you're dieting?

Mom, don't you know?

Jiamei wants to be a model


Don't speak our dialect with her

Your Cantonese is poor

Don't set a bad example for her

How could I?

She already speaks like a Guangdong girl

Wang Jiamei, what did she just do? What happened?

Why didn't you say anything?

Don't you know she could die?

Answer me!

You'd better stop the bleeding,

you said she could die

Are you Wang Jiamei?


I am Miss Mak

The students all call rne Miss Mak

the school social worker

How would you like rne to address you?

D0 you have an English name?

K-A-M-A, Kama

I know most of the 9th grade students

but I don't know you

You must be a quiet girl

Although you get good grades

some teachers feel you don't like them

Actually, I feel that some teachers don't like rne

You wrote on Facebook

I turned on the lights and saw the bed was bloody

The two of us were rolling on the bed

like pigs at a butcher's

That was my first time

That was my boyfriend in Dongguan

We broke up


You've been in Hong Kong a year now

and you've just turned

So can you tell me why

you saw your classmate slit her wrists

but didn't tell Miss Wu?

Because I was scared

Why did she cut herself with a knife?

Many things are difficult to explain

What is it, Officer Chong?

Did you steal his girlfriend?

How did you know?

I heard the rumors

I hitched a ride

Yiu Tung Street, right?

Let's go

You forgot your phone


The last person to see the victim was

Ting Tsz-chung

He hasn't been home since last night

We've found the landlord

CSI has gone over the room with an arc lamp

There are bloodstains all over the floor

Are there any witnesses?

There's an old lady

Why don't you rest a bit?

If you think of anything

please let us know, OK?

Mr. Ting

What are you cooking?

Do you need any help?

Please take a picture for me

Of what?

Of me

0f you?

Here, I'll do it


(Looking for Mei)

No, no, help me

Help me, help me

What the f*** is it?

Pick up

Stamp the receipt and give it to rne

Hurry up! You're so slow

I need to pee


By the time you get to the customer

they'll complain the meat has gone bad

Move it!

Move it!

Get out of here!

Where are you from?


I'm asking where you're from, damnit

This morning, police found pools of blood

in an apartment in Sham Shui P0

They believe someone was murdered there

It is thought that the victim was a woman

A male tenant is wanted by the police

He has not been located

Boy-boy no PlayStation

Finish summer homework first


See you tonight

Not doing anything?

Madam Law


Do you really have to work so hard?


You'll exhaust yourself

How's the murder case going?

The victim is Wang Jiamei

age 16, from Hunan

Her mother remarried 7 years ago

but she failed to get a Hong Kong visa

So she moved to Shilong in Dongguan

Since her stepfather's family was nearby

and it's close to Hong Kong

so her mother could easily come back to visit

A year ago

she immigrated to Hong Kong

She left school before finishing 9th grade

She supposedly was an assistant

at a modelling company

but actually was a paid escort

She was killed during sex with a client

Her flesh was chopped up

and flushed down the toilet

The killer ripped the skin off her face

and carted her bones to Shek Kip Mei Market

Great! So the case is closed?

The killer, Ting Tsz-chung

age 29

claims to be a delivery driver

but he's a triad member

Sells smuggled cigarettes

The day of the murder was

the first time he had met her

There were no bad feelings between them

But they may have taken ketamine

before sex

causing him to kill her while under the influence

Don't smoke in my home

You think cops can do whatever they want?

Always dreaming of being a movie star

or a model

but she never looks in the mirror

She looks just like her rotten dad

Modelling is about more than height

And she goes out with so many guys

She's always out all night

taking birth control pills

I know she has a boyfriend

Fine! Don't come back!

Madam, the test results are back

Your daughter may very well have passed away

You mean she's dead?

What are you saying?



Perfect timing

Talk to her

DPC 51334

She's hostile

and thinks her daughter is still alive

You're crazy!

Not thinks - hopes

What do you want me to do?

Make her believe her daughter is dead?

Don't smoke so much

You don't need to

call Missing Persons every day

They've given the case

to us in Regional Crimes

You're luckier than many others

In Hong Kong, one person goes missing every hour

Many parents

don't know for years

whether their children are alive or dead

- Hi, Chuen

- May


It must feel good to take your shirt off, right?

You can, too

Let's make a date then

Hello, Manager


Mr. Ma keeps asking what time you start work

Does he sign my paychecks?

May, you're finally here!

Let's dance

No way. I need to make a living

Are you shy?


I'm not shameless
