Plastic City is a Brazilian-Chinese-Japanese-Hong Kong 2008 thriller film directed by Yu Lik-wai. Yuda, a feared Chinese outlaw, and his adopted son Kirin, an impulsive young dreamer, together rule the pirated goods racket in an ultra-liberal Brazilian metropolis. They control all of Liberdade, Sao Paolo--from rival gangs to street hawkers, corrupt politicians to erotic dancers. But an empire that takes years to build can also crumble to the ground with one fatal mistake. A conspiracy between politicians and the yakuza begins to threaten Yuda's power. Little by little, he loses control of his business and is ultimately arrested. Kirin struggles to re-conquer his father's honor, fighting the city's wars single-handedly.
