Based on an ancient Chinese proverb, "The Air I Breathe" is a romantic crime story that follows four extraordinary tales of human emotion: Happiness, Sorrow, Pleasure and Love.
Happiness centers on the plight of a spiritually bereft banker who finds himself only after he loses everything and resolves to rob a bank. Sorrow follows the story of a reckless female pop star who is at a turbulent point in her career. Pleasure follows the tale of a gangster who can see the future. And Love tells the story of a frantic doctor desperately trying to save a patient's life.
Their stories—shocking, suspenseful and searing - intersect dramatically.
