Herman Yau spins this low-budget erotic thriller featuring the softcore screen debut of pop idol Irene Wan. The film opens with a naked woman plunging to her death off of a high-rise -- a seeming suicide. Her husband Tsui Chin-tung (Simon Yam) is unconvinced and sets out to seek vengeance against sleazy businessman Lam Kwok-chui (Alfred Cheung) whom his wife was having an affair with. Though only planning to beat the guy up, he ends up abducting his beautiful wife Ho-yee (Wan) along with his kid. When his crime threatens to be undone by a greedy neighbor, Tsui releases his hostages after Lam reluctantly pays only part of the ransom. Upset and suspicious that her husband tries to haggle for her freedom, Ho-yee returns to Tsui to engage in noisy lovemaking and to plot against her evil husband.
