This Hong-Kong drama follows what happens after Ma, the desperate ex-con, kidnaps the boy and begins a journey in the north of the city. Ma and the boy soon become quite close until a railroad accident puts the lad in mortal danger. His mother and the others arrive and it is then that Ma learns the truth.
