In a typical Hong Kong comedy-thriller about mistaken identity, a billionaire is out to murder a judge but his plans for the assassination are tape-recorded by a detective. Before the detective is found and killed, he is able to slip the incriminating tape into the purse of a young female journalist. At that point, a mainland Chinese searching for his father in Hong Kong is mistaken for the son of the billionaire, and so when the reporter meets him, some misunderstanding ensues. After extensive games of hide-and-seek, the forces of evil are sapped and the bad guys, as always, get what they deserve.
