Two brothers from an upper-class family (Danny Chan and Paul Chung) and their impoverished school chum (Leslie Chum, no pun intended), slowly discover their adult personas as they go through a series of love interests and adventures. One of the brothers is a budding musician, innocent of heart and mind, who meets a woman in the subway station and develops a relationship with her. The other brother is more tough-minded and yearns for a career in the corporate world. And the financially deprived classmate runs into one misfortune after the next, as he is dragged down into the world of drugs and drug dealers -- and various erotic encounters along the way to the bottom. Eventually, the three friends strengthen their bonds, and in the end, there may be some hope for all of them, as they each have a tighter grasp on reality -- maybe any grasp at all on reality -- to see them through the next stage in their adventures.
