Elections are always tense, but none more than for the leadership of Hong Kong’s largest and oldest criminal triad. The level-headed Lok and the megalomaniac Big D vie for the chairmanship of the 50,000-strong Wo Shing Triad. Big D will do whatever it takes to win, but Lok defeats him when the respected Uncle Teng intervenes. Enraged, Big D prevents the ceremonial baton being transferred to his nemesis, this symbol of power signalling the ultimate transferral of authority. When the baton disappears onto the mainland, the dizzying fury of the triad society is unleashed and the real power struggle begins, with some ruthless action marking the wresting of the baton...

Doing for Hong Kong Triads what The Godfather did for New York Italian mafia, cult Hong Kong director Johnnie To brings together a luminous cast in a tale of age-old brotherhood traditions meeting cut-throat 21st-century ambition. Election offers plenty of explosive action as well as a window into the inner-workings of one of the world’s most secret crime organsiations.
