Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Wong Shu-tong spins this family drama about life on the set of kung-fu flicks, featuring a young Chow Yun-Fat. Bullet (Chow) is the youngest and best performer in a family stunt outfit that is barely staying afloat. Bullet's older brother Chin lacks the ability of his younger sibling and his father, Chen Wai Lung (Lam Chiao), once a highly sought-after stunt man, is suffering from failing health. Later, Bullet falls in love with his long lost cousin from the Mainland, Ching Hsiao (Chan Man-ngai), and takes a choice job in Taiwan, abandoning the family business. As his son becomes a major film star, Lung decides to make one last stunt gig and gets horribly injured in the process. Unable to contact Bullet, Chin resorts to a botched robbery attempt to pay for his father's urgently needed surgery.
