Ringo Lam - Xue xiao feng yun aka School on Fire (1989)

A gritty and extremely efficient school-set drama by HK action master Ringo Lam, the third from the fire series (City on Fire, Prison on Fire).

Chu Yuen-Fong (Fennie Yuen) witnesses a triad beating and amidst tons of pressure from cops (Lam Ching-Ying and Tommy Wong) and her teacher (Damian Lau), she reports it. However, young triad boss Brother Smart (Roy Cheung) gets annoyed and terrorizes her into paying a HK$30,000 legal fee. It's really just protection money, and things can only get worse from there. Tension grows, events escalate, and IT ALL GOES TO HELL. Ringo Lam handles everything in trademark gritty fashion, and the results will either glue you to the screen or have you hiding your eyes in discomfort. (source :
