Judge | 2008
1997, small city in northern China. Criminal Qiu Wu is sentenced to death for stealing two cars. The judge on his case, Judge Tian, just lost his daughter in a car accident. She was killed by driver of a stolen vehicle. A recent change in the law creates an opportunity for Qiu Wu to avoid execution. At the same time, Qiu Wu tries to lighten his sentence by offering to donate one of his kidneys to a rich businessman named Lee. In order to secure the kidney, Lee greases the wheels of the system, only to discover that the only way for him to secure the kidney is after Qui Wu's execution--an execution that is now being questioned based on the changes in the law. The final decision of whether nor not to proceed with an execution weighs on the shoulders of Judge Tian.
