Protégé is a stimulating exploration of the complex relationships within the multilayered, international drug manufacturing and distribution syndicates of today. It is everything you want to know about drugs, but never knew.
The film tells of a well-intentioned narcotics agent, Nick (Daniel Wu) deep undercover in the heart of Hong Kong’s lucrative heroin trade. He is forced to deal with the hypocrisy and despair in a life of drugs and crime, as he plays protégé to one of the key players of the game, “Banker” (Andy Lau). In the eight years he has been infiltrating the heroin industry; Nick has amassed enough evidence to indict Banker, but has just received orders to remain undercover in an attempt to expose the identity of the man behind Banker in order to bring down the entire organization. However, as Nick becomes more embroiled with Banker’s craft and increasingly entrusted with his confidences, he finds himself corrupted by the easy money and his new found power. Unable to separate himself from his undercover persona, he immerses himself into his role as a drug trafficker.
