‘Infernal Affairs’ Movie Summary
In the mean streets of Hong Kong, the police and the criminals look to deceptive ways to gain the advantage over their adversaries. Chan Wing-yan is a candidate in the police academy who looks to have a promising future in law enforcement. He is approached by his direct superior, Superintendent Wong, to go undercover into the triad for three years to gather information for the Hong Kong Police Force.
The catch, no one will know but Wong that Chan is secretly a police officer. At the same time, a powerful gang boss, Hon Sam, plants multiple triad members into the Hong Kong Police Force, including the young Lau Kin-ming.
The film then skips to ten years later, Chan is still working undercover and is experiencing great stress from his continuous undercover duty. His boss Wong is sympathetic and promises that they are getting close to taking down Hon Sam. At the same time, Lau quickly rises through the ranks of the police force, and has become instrumental in the team surveilling and investigating Hon Sam.read full summary
