Noted action director Ching Siu-tang spins this wild and woolly supernatural romantic thriller. Joe Wong (Chow Yun-fat) is an architect, who, while on vacation in Nepal with his lady friend, Ida (Yammie Nam Kit-yang), gets thrown from an elephant, injuring his leg. While convalescing in a Kathmandu hospital, he has a vision of a beautiful veiled woman who has strange, magical powers. When his leg becomes infected, he soon finds himself in a hospital in Hong Kong only to discover the same woman named Sheila (Emily Chu Bo-yee) in his dream in the same hospital and she magically heals his leg. Unable to forget this unusual lass, he returns to the hospital just in time to save her from the evil immigration officers who are about to haul her back to her native Nepal. While on the lam, they soon fall in love. Later, Joe realizes that he has been chosen to be the defender of a remote tribe in Nepal.
