Guy Lai Ying-chau directs this romantic crime yarn about a pair of sibling thieves named Pretty Eyes (Joyce Ngai Suk-kwan) and Slanty Eyes (played by pop star Sandy Lam Yik-lin). When the two make the mistake of lightening the wallet of a mob assassin who just got paid for a hit, they find themselves in dire trouble. Pretty saves herself by getting arrested. When she gets out of the clink, she is pursued by handsome Taiwanese Interpol officer Simon Tang (Billy Lau Nam-kwong). When Pretty finally manages to lose the cop, Tang finds himself the target of the vengeful hired gun. Later, Tang, his Hong Kong police associate Chan (Leslie Cheung Kwok-wing), and the two sisters unite against the killer. Wong Kar-wai who would latter direct some of Hong Kong's finest films co-wrote this script.
