Director's statement

Save the Destiny is China’s first one-shot suspense film. The film has only one shot in the whole 87 minutes, and we hope to tell a good story with this one real shot.

Stealing, infidelity, murder, resurrection, rape, suicide, in this room full of good and evil, love and hate, who is the real murderer? Is he/she saving others or oneself?

In the film, the root of all these evil comes from love. Love represents the essence of human civilization. Love is great yet selfish. It is a kind of giving, courage, but also sacrifice. For their children, parents could violate their own conscience, be insulted and even be willing to end their life.

What will a thief, a gambler, and a pair of parents choose to save their destiny between law, morality, life and children?
