A nasty, CultClassic HongKong movie from 1993 [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory supposedly based on true events]]. A severed hand washes up on a beach in Macau. The local cops investigate, eventually leading to the Eight Immortals Restaurant, which is run by the polite and nerdy Wong Chi Hang. Mr. Wong cannot provide proof of ownership for the restaurant, which has a really high turnover rate in employees who always seem to leave abruptly. The police soon find that the restaurant once belonged to a family who was nowhere to be found. The cops know something isn't right but they don't have proof of anything. Eventually, they resort to extreme methods to force a confession from Mr. Wong.
