GANGSTER PAYDAY harks back to the rich history of Triad films during Hong Kong’s 80’s and 90’s golden age. With cameos from some real life gangsters and starring cult favourite Anthony WONG (IP MAN: THE FINAL FIGHT, INFERNAL AFFAIRS, THE MISSION), the film portrays an aging mob boss, struggling to adapt his values of honour and loyalty, to a fast changing Hong Kong.
Synopsis

When a retired Triad boss faces threats to his legitimate business from a property development scheme backed by a rival gang, he has no choice but to dive back into the violent Hong Kong underworld one last time.
Reunited with his former gang associates, they must settle old scores together and fight for what’s theirs – can loyalty and honour still win the day?

Director Lee Po Cheung statement:

Time goes by so fast, and I have now been part of the film industry for many years. I had taken part in numerous large-scale productions involving hundreds of actors, with bullets whizzing by every which way. However, the films that most move me are those that feature our distinctive Hong Kong sentiments and wit. I believe that whatever is worth preserving should be preserved. I hope Hong Kong cinema will survive in the increasingly challenging environment.
