What do a bank teller, a small-time thug and a police inspector have in common? Nothing. Not until a bag of stolen money worth $5m crosses their paths and forces them to make soul searching decisions about right and wrong and everything in between on the morality scale. Life Without Principle, a suspenseful drama that takes a hard look at Hong Kong’s money obsessed culture through three characters whose destinies will cross over one fateful day.
