Wong Ha spins this low-budget indie kung-fu flick. The film centers around Fatty Kwei, a bumptious pig butcher who boasts to all who will listen about his formidable kung-fu prowess. Though he is in fact only an average martial artist at best, he manages to defeat two of the finest fighters in the area. Yet his inflated ego is taken down a couple notches when he encounters Wing Chun master Liang Chen (Melvin Wong Kam-sun) who promptly cleans his clock. After Fatty's teacher and Liang have a match, each decide to swap pupils. Fatty will learn the finer points of Wing Chun, while moneychanger Hua (Norman Tsui Siu-keung), who is already an able fighter, will learn from Fatty's teacher. Later, two thugs try to take out Liang and chaos soon ensues.
