Angels Wear White

Mia works illegally as a cleaner for a hotel in a small sea- side town in China; the hotel also doubles up as her home. One day, she stands in for her friend on reception for the night shift. In so doing she is witness to a dubious and disturbing incident. After checking in to the motel with two pre-teen girls, a middle-aged man forces his way into the girls’ room in the middle of the night. Mia records the whole episode on her cell phone. The next day, we find out that the middle-aged man is a high-ranking local official and that he raped the girls in his care. Aided by the breakout performances of its two young leads, Angels Wear White conjures up a complex tale of blackmail and corruption that has us empathising with characters even as they make morally questionable choices.
