Andrew Lau Wai-keung spins this unlikely tale of crime and star-crossed love. While hanging out in the Mainland Chinese border town of Shenzhen, street tough Melvin (Dior Cheng Yee-kin) gets into a tussle over a lass named Sue (Jacqueline Wu Chien-lien) whom he just met. After serving time in the big house, he returns home to discover his mother (Mimi Chu Mi-mi) is turning tricks and his father is a drunken weasel. Sue, however, is a successful radio personally. Feeling responsible for Melvin's troubles, she manages to get him a job at her father's company. When the two fall in love, Sue's dad plots to have him framed for fraud. When Melvin is confronted, he learns that he must either dump Sue or cough up 400 thousand dollars in 24 hours to avoid another trip to the clink.
