Set in a nightmarish and claustrophobic Shanghai, Nighthawks is a dystopian film noire exploring social media’s impact on society and its insidious capacity to unleash man’s darker self. On a silent summer night, down a dark backstreet, a small, dimly lit noodle shop remains open long after hours. The silence is rudely pierced by the arrival of a chatty elderly woman. As she engages the patrons, we become witnesses to an unsettling confrontation, implicating not only those present, in a conspiracy fuelled by a twisted sense of justice.
