Two con men, Song (Li Yixiang) and Tang (Wang Shuangbao), have devised a nearly flawless scam. They coerce a man into posing as their brother--explaining that it's the only way they can get him a job in the coal mine--and then they murder him. They make it look like a mining accident, and collect a hefty sum from the mine owner for their loss. Instead of sending all the money home to their school-age children, they spend much of it on prostitutes. When they choose their next victim, Yuan (Wang Baoqiang), a teenage boy trying to earn money for school, they instantly sense that something, this time around, is wrong. Writer-director-producer Li Yang has created a richly layered film with BLIND SHAFT, which was banned in China because it was made without permission from the official film bureau.
