For taxi driver Lao Shi every day of work is a fight for his family’s basic economic survival. One day, he accidentally hits a motorcyclist after a drunken passenger pulls his arm while Lao is driving. Lao drives the injured man to the hospital, only to discover that he’s now legally responsible for the medical bills. Plunged into a bureaucratic nightmare and faced with financial ruin, he's forced to embrace retribution as his only possible escape. OLD STONE begins as a social-realist drama and turns into a furious, bloody noir, but even as it goes into cinematic overdrive, it does so with an engine that runs on humanism and empathy.
