Gordon Chan Kar-seung spins this comedy about Lam Chiu-wing (Leslie Cheung Kwok-wing), an ambitious sleazebag who, at the film's outset, loses his job and his girl on the same day. He crashes with his ne'er-do-well musician friend James (Tony Leung Kar-fai) and subsequently takes advantage of him. When James falls for comely businesswoman Winnie Tsang (Rosamund Kwan Chi-lam), Lam leapfrogs over his friend and starts going out with her. He eventually lands a job at her company, impressing the higher-ups with his near-sociopathic ease of lying. Soon, Lam has crawled his way to the top of his profession but realizes that he has trashed all those around him to get there.
