Billy Tang Hin-sing and Takkie Yeung Yat-tak spin this wild and woolly thriller. Fion Wong (Francoise Yip Fong-wah) is a high-powered banker dealing in particular with Japanese stocks. Following the massive Kobe earthquake of 1995, Fion finds herself in financial hot water after the Tokyo markets crash. Looking to make some money quickly, she gets talked into buying an Indonesian corporation with business executive Donson Woo (Michael Chow Man-kin). So she uses 100 million dollars of her company's money, without telling her superiors, to buy the company, only to learn that her partner was a fraud and the money is gone. She eventually tracks down the real Donson Woo -- who himself has been ripped off -- and hightails it to Indonesia where she learns that the real Donson Woo has been framed for the murder of his secretary Jessica (Diana Pang Dan). This film had all sorts of problems while on location in Indonesia including having both stars, the producer, and eight other crewmembers arrested for visa problems.
