Ah Kwok (Allan Tam) is the white sheep in a family of black -- his mother runs a brothel, his father is a mobster, but somehow his brother works on the Hong Kong police force and lives in peace with his parents. Young Kwok is a day-dreaming parking-lot attendant who whiles away his time fantasizing about life and a certain lovely model who happens to be the daughter of another mobster -- maybe the only thing they have in common. One night the model's father goes to Kwok's mother's brothel and sets up an assignation with one of the women of the evening. But instead of ingesting the necessary aphrodisiac so he can get up to speed, he takes a sleeping pill by accident and his motor starts gearing down -- until others think his battery is dead. So his body is put in a wicker basket and sent -- where else? -- off to Ah Kwok at the parking lot for disposal. This unexpected turn of events shakes the young man out of his reveries -- how is he supposed to handle the dead body of what he had hoped would be his future father-in-law and then go after his dream woman pretending he knows nothing about her father's death?
