When his daughter Chi goes missing in Thailand, Hong Kong cop Lee (Louis Koo) isn’t leaving anything to chance. Upon arrival in Thailand, Lee quickly convinces Thai police Chui Kit and Tak (Tony Jaa) to let him assist in the investigation.

But as the investigation heats up they uncover an unusual smuggling ring with powerful connections. The violence escalates and Chui Kit quickly realizes that they are over their heads. When his commander orders them to step aside, will Chui Kit and Lee continue to fight for justice? One of the best action films of the year, with a powerhouse action trio in Yip, Hung, and Jaa, PARADOX is the hottest must-see martial arts extravanganza at HIFF 2017!
