Produced by John Woo and inspired by his classic work Bullet in the Head (1990), BLOOD BROTHERS is the story of three close friends from simple roots who are forced to wrestle with the temptation of material wealth when they move to metropolis of Shanghai.
Living as poor fishermen in a small village on the outskirts of Shanghai, Fung, Kang, and his little brother Hu decide to hit the big city in the hopes of a better and more fulfilling life. Not all is as smooth as they hoped, however, as they are each tempted by the riches made available through the criminal underworld. They are quickly drawn into the vicious and seductive life provided by the most infamous nightclub in Shanghai - the Paradise Club - where the dance stage sparkles every night with beautiful women.
Behind the bright lights, a stream of blood flows deep and wide as Boss Hong, owner of the Paradise Club and a powerful figure in the crime world of Shanghai finds that his right-hand man is having an affair with his main act - the sultry songstress named Lulu. All the while, both his enemies and his allies are plotting to wrestle control of local gangs away from him.
As the three brothers rise to power, Fung has to make a choice between this life of crime and unrequited love, or a return to the man he once was. Hu struggles with his own weaknesses and reconciles himself to the dangers of his new life in Shanghai while Kang, blinded by a lust for power, pursues his own ambitions at any cost.
