Touch of Sin (2013)

This grand-scale film focuses on four characters, each living in different Chinese provinces, who are driven to violent ends. An angry miner, enraged by widespread corruption in his village, decides to take justice into his own hands. A rootless migrant discovers the infinite possibilities of owning a firearm. A young receptionist, who dates a married man and works at a local sauna, is pushed beyond her limits by an abusive client. And a young factory worker goes from one discouraging job to the next, only to face increasingly degrading circumstances.

Movies On The House (MOTH) screens films that help contribute to the important cultural discussions around the art, artists, and ideas of our time. Since 1999, Movies On The House has screened scores of films free for all of the UNF Community; films that help contribute to the important cultural discussions of our time. MOTH celebrates the best in alternative cinema.
