This story of two brothers, a thief and a policeman, a dramatic portrayal of what family means in a society that has splintered the traditional institution. Though the brothers express mutual disdain, they can't resist seeking each other out. Their forays into each other's turf result in increasingly hostile confrontations that culminate in tragedy.
