Crime does not pay this time in this action-packed sequel by name only to WHITE STORM. Set in the steamy Triad-controlled underbelly of Hong Kong, the story follows Yu Shun-tin (superstar actor Andy Lau), a lowly thug for a powerful mob boss. One night, his boss asks him to punish his long-time friend Fung Chun-kwok (Louis Koo) by cutting off three of his fingers. Traumatized by the incident, Yu decides to turn his life around, eventually becoming a rich industrialist and philanthropist. Meanwhile, street-hardened Fung becomes a powerful drug lord with a sadistic thirst for blood. After so many years, it seems that the two old friends have diverged, but when ghosts from Yu’s past start to resurface, their paths will eventually collide again.

Hong Kong action thriller fans will enjoy THE WHITE STORM 2: DRUG LORDS, helmed by veteran director Herman Yau, who has participated in more than 100 films in diversified genres such as horror, drama, comedy, gangster and action. Many of them have become Hong Kong classic movies, such as THE UNTOLD STORY, TAXI HUNTER, FROM THE QUEEN TO THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE, SHOCK WAVE, and the thriller series TROUBLESOME NIGHT.
