A solid drama with very, very few gratuitous "prison violence"scenes. I think the director/writer's name is Samson Chiu--I don't know if he's done any other movies--he has a nice sense of pacing, and it was visually a lot more interesting than it could have been (because it basically takes place in the boys' cell and in a couple of other locations in the prison). The acting is good, too--especially the guy who plays Koon (don't know his name).

After spending one last day in HK, Lam Ming Che intentionally gets himself arrested and put in juvenille prison, in order to find his friend Chan, arrested on a previous night of adventure. In prison, he discovers and becomes part of a whole new culture and economy, where wealth is measured in candy and small freedoms mean everything. This is an interesting story that is told amazingly well (in both direction/writing and acting). Highly recommended for anyone who likes a good simple tale.
