In this action thriller from Hong Kong, Jack (Leon Lai) and Martin (Lau Ching-wan) are gunmen who work for two rival kingpins, Yam (Yam Sai-koon) and Fong (Fong Ping). Jack and Martin have been warring on their bosses' behalf for close to a year, but when the two factions declare a truce, the trigger men, who have both taken a physical and emotional beating, find they're now expendable and are cut loose. After a period of bitter poverty, the two men decide to join forces and take on the gangsters who used them and threw them away.
