The title of this Hong Kong crime tale translates as "dark flowers," slang for an underworld contract. While a gang war is developing, Macao cop Sam (Tong Leung Chiu-wai) takes on a gunman in a restaurant where bald Tony (Lau Ching-wan) is eating. After Sam goes to a mobster's restaurant where an informant is tortured, he finds a headless corpse in his apartment. Then a nightclub owner is murdered, and Sam moves fast to find the killer in an effort to prevent the gang war from escalating. However, he gets a full dose of action after he pins the crime on Tony.
