YesAsia Editorial Description

A harrowing and intense drama about triad gangs in a Hong Kong high school, School On Fire qualifies as yet another Hong Kong Cinema classic from master director Ringo Lam! Chu Yuen Fong (Fennie Yuen) is a student who witnesses a triad beating, and is pressured by cops and teachers into testifying against the attackers. But this is just Fong's initiation into the dark and disturbingly corrupt world of Hong Kong triads. The lead triad Brother Smart (a menacing Roy Cheung) terrorizes Fong into playing an obscene protection fee, and she becomes too frightened to tell her parents or the teachers. Her friend Siu Chun (Lee Lai Yui) comes to her rescue, but she can only do so much. As Fong's world begins to crumble, a righteous teacher (Damian Lau) and a just cop (the great Lam Ching Ying) do their best to help her. But can they do anything before the triads threaten to consume Fong, Siu Chun, and ultimately even the school? Directed in compelling fashion by Ringo Lam, School On Fire is an intense and powerful action drama that affects with both gritty realism and heightened, desperate emotions.

First Press comes with a postcard, only available while supplies last.

To prevent is better than to take a risk... Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
A student, namely Chu Yuen Fong (Fennie Yuen) experienced an accident. This accident is not to be forgotten without being testified, but Fong is just too frightened to do so. Her righteous teacher Mr. Wan ( Damian Lau) gives her confidence to make her do so, and this act of hers does not approve to the triad bad guy of the underworld, Smart (Roy Cheung). Not only this, Fong's close friend Kwok Siu Chun (Sarah Lee) faces difficulties, which makes the situation even worse. A triad member of Roy's helps Fennie out. Will Fennie ever seek the ultimate plan of taking revenge on Roy for going too far? The pain can never be go unless and until something is done...
