The Score 无花果

The Fig: embodies decay and destruction. It is usually used in rituals. In the bible, the fig tree is able to differentiate good and evil. An accidental death (the victim had died after falling from a building) was investigated upon by a retired police officer and his pathologist son, and the truth was unravelled, layer by layer, to uncover a ghastly scandal, where human nature reared its ugly head. The moral of the story ? No one can escape the long arm of justice. The Beginning. Anna Xu, the chairman of T&E, and her husband, Luo Zhigang, were immensely successful and influential in the business circles. Shunbang was Anna and Zhigang's only son. A free-spirit, he fell over heels in love with his company's employee, Tianlan, and courted her even though she already had a steady boyfriend, David Zhang. This disrupted Tianlan's peaceful existence but unbeknownst to her, a more serious challenge was about to begin.As Anna and Zhigang were entertaining guests at their wedding anniversary party they hosted, when their retired butler, Xu Xiong, fell to his death. Zhibin, a police officer and Zhigang's cousin, and his pathologist son, Shun-an, started to investigate the case. Henceforth, Anna's life started its downward spiral.The death sparked speculation of a scandal and invariably harmed the couple's reputation. Anna's business competitors start to close in on her and to add to her problems, Su Nancheng, the man who entered an illicit deal with her all those years ago reappeared. This put Anna in a spot and stoked Zhigang's jealousy, as the latter irrationally did something that could never be salvaged. David discovered the truth by accident and was mowed down by the drunken Shunbang. This accident caught everyone off guard.With their reputations tarnished, Anna was ousted from T&E. She reflected and realised the causal effect behind all that was happening. The root of this chain of incidents stemmed from a traffic accident that happened 20 years ago, and an immense hatred had started to brew through the 2 decades. The villain behind Anna's downfall, it turned out, was totally unexpected...
