Veronica Yip Yuk-hing stars in this romantic thriller about doctor Ivy Yip who one day is attacked and raped by an assailant whose face was obscured. The incident sends her reeling, sending her relationship into the dumpster and her job performance into the toilet. At work, she becomes seized with the case of patient Lee Yuen-lung (Simon Yam Tat-wah), a gangster whose gruesome head injury has left him with the mental capacity of a child. Since Ivy's own incompetence contributed in part to the gangster's reduced abilities, she resigns from her job. Later, she encounters the ex-mobster in Macau and Ivy vows to make amends by caring for him. As his faculties slowly return to normal, the two inevitably fall in love. Of course, the past of both Lee and Ivy soon come back to haunt them.
