A recently fired manager in search of gainful employment must race to Kowloon in order to sign his new contract before the end of the work day or face unemployment in this black comedy that reunites Men Suddenly in Black co-stars Jordan Chan and Chapman To. Despite the fact that he has just been handed his walking papers, Raymond (Chan) is quick to find a new job thanks to the help of best pal Bey (To). In order to secure his new position though, Raymond must reach his friend's workplace in Kowloon and sign the necessary papers by 5 o'clock p.m. When Raymond is mugged while attempting to cross the harbor, he finds that getting out of Hong Kong Island is tougher than he expected when you have no money and the clock is ticking.
