Tai­wanese di­rec­tor Midi Z pins docu-style heft to a res­o­nant char­ac­ter drama about Burmese mi­grants in Bangkok. Lian­qing (Wu Ke-Xi) is am­bi­tious, Guo (Kai Ko) isn’t: but evoca­tive images – loom­ing cranes, webbed silk – show them equally en­trapped in a po­tent tale of des­per­a­tion and ex­ploita­tion, steered to a sting­ing cli­max with taut emo­tional pur­pose.
