In Hong Kong and Macau, four gamblers take us on a journey into the world of winners and losers created by a culture of speculation, addiction and debt. Gambling has long been part of Chinese life, but, with a society increasingly divided by rich and poor, an obsession with winning easy money has intensified, with more and more people pinning their hopes on games of luck and fortune. Through personal stories High/Low reveals an emotional search for belief and identity in money-centric modern China.
