Layla Zhuqing Ji’s powerful debut feature offers a hard-hitting examination of teenage knife crime. Gangzi (Kahoe Hon) is stabbed to death. His schoolmate Chen (Xianjun Fu) confesses to the crime. Why would a smart, mild-mannered star pupil commit cold-blooded murder? Were they rivals for a new girl in class? The answer lies in a culture of bullying flourishing unchecked in a school dominated by merciless girls and mindless boys. Based on true events, Victim(s) offers a compelling account of the crime and a society keen to judge rather than understand.

Ji crafts a scathing social critique.
