Synopsis by Bhob Stewart

L.A.-based Chinese director Sherwood Hu made his English-language feature debut with this fantasy thriller shot in Hawaii and mainland China. The wedding preparations of local policeman Turner (Angus MacFadyen) and native Hawaiian Jenny (Carlotta Chang) are intercut with a bank robbery led by Bong (Chris Tashima). When Turner stops at the bank, he encounters the robbers and chases them out of town to the farm where the wedding guests are gathered. Jenny and the guests are slaughtered during a shootout. The emotionally distraught Turner ignores the suggestion of police captain Kenny (Ray Bumatai) that he take a vacation. Driven by revenge, he begins an investigation and embarks on a search for the killers. Shown at the 1998 San Sebastian Film Festival.
