With Prisoners

Synopsis: After a bar brawl with an off-duty cop, aspiring thug Fan (Neo Yau, Fire Lee's gonzo Robbery) is sentenced to three months in juvenile detention like Hong Kong's Sha Tsui Detention Center, which practices military-style rehabilitation. Insults and abuse are core tenets of the treatment, carried out by the bored, jaded staff, where an occasional true believer lingers among the guards.

A week

You gave up after a week?

What can you do?

Nonsense, we can fight back if we stay together

Those old guys got one foot in the grave

I will kick all their asses!

Quiet, don't even dream about it

Someone fought back once, almost died

If the others hear you, they will tell the guards

Why don't you tell on me?

My brother from outside

told me to take care of you

Just tough it out, 3 months,

you get your board meeting

You are lucky you got Ho at our block

He's the only reasonable guard in here,

the rest are all a**holes

Chan and Gwai, they are the worst

One's a psychopath, the other's bipolar, stay away

Forget about it,

you will get the hang of it in no time

Committed theft on January 8th 2016

Good morning sir, thank you sir
