Karmic Mahjong is a thriller in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train and takes us on a journey towards murder. Involved in these dark plots: a wife, Lai, who finds her husband useless and sexually unattractive; her husband, Chen, a mechanic, who is plagued by bad luck; a young woman, Jia, whose son has been kidnapped; and Master Liu who foresees Chen’s coming misfortunes, not just with his wife but with business associates. When things go badly for Chen, Master Liu proves to be right, and Chen begs to be pointed in the right direction. Liu’s explanation of how to change their luck drives Chen into a pact with Jia.
