Description

It's 1920. The city of Shanghai has been invaded by the drug trade. The drug trafficking and usage of opium have taken the city by storm. While the looks of the city seem calm, deep within there is a secret and nobody realizes that the small hidden drug world is about to get bigger..much bigger. The underground world that was once hush- hush is now slowly making it's way to the surface to corrupt the public. However only a few are aware of it, for the rest it shall cause an uproar making some frantic and some in awe. Soon the drug is seen all around the city and it seems that getting one's hands on it has become a problem so much so that it causes an all out epidemic. One that no one will see coming or seemingly be able to stop.. One of the few people aware of all this is Ryu Tsang, a local dock worker who grew up admiring the city for all it's glamour. When strange things start happening Ryu takes notice. While at first he brushes off the first few encounters he can't help but shake the fact that something bigger is unfolding. Shin Shaojin believes the city will be better off embracing such change. He has a vision of Shanghai's future. One that involves his business to bloom and offer endless possibilities to all that are accepting. Will the city overcome the dark cloud that is the drug trade or will it be taken in and become the change that Shin Shaojin believes it can be?show more
