From the producers of the popular Young and Dangerous series comes director Billy Tang's sordid look at life in the Hong Kong underworld. Chingmy Yau stars as Yan, a triad girl who takes the fall for her gangster boyfriend Walkie Pi (Simon Yam) and is subsequently imprisoned by authorities for a crime she didn't commit. Upon release the self-possessed Yan so impresses call-girl club owner Playboy Man (Michael Tao) that the enamored heavy hires her as a Mamasan at his glamorous club Number One. When Number One's top Mamasan Karen (Valerie Chow) departs for a job at a rival club, Yan is promoted to the top position -- a promotion that sparks a bitter war between the two clubs.
