A cop near the end of his career joins forces with a 16-year-old girl to find his missing granddaughter in this action-packed drama with comic overtones. Wu (Law Lit) is a veteran Hong Kong police detective who finds himself taking on a case with a personal impact when his teenage granddaughter Cho disappears and he's assigned to investigate. Wu contacts P (Zeny Kwok), Cho's best friend, who claims the missing girl borrowed a large amount of money from her before she went missing. Wu is a by-the-books cop, while P is all adolescent attitude, and at first they mix about as well as oil and water, but a grudging respect begins to grow between them as they set aside their differences in hopes of finding Cho. Before long, Wu and P are joined in their search by Tofu (Chui Tienyou), P's significant other. Law Lit starred in a number of martial arts pictures in the 1970s under the name Lo Lieh.
