Simon Yam Tat-wah stars in this B-grade cop action flick as Man-hwa, an undercover cop who has been on the job so long that he has forgotten his priorities. When the cops set up a sting for notorious drug lord and Man-hwa's buddy Lu Chan-feng (Yu Rongguang), our hero dithers on handing the criminal over to the authorities. Lu manages to escape but falls victim to a bomb planted in his get-away car. After the funeral, Man-hwa starts to put the moves on Lu's gorgeous ex Yung (Christy Chung Lai-tai) even though he is already involved with the long-suffering June (Eileen Tung Oi-ling). Later, it emerges that Lu is not actually dead and he insists on having Man-hwa assist him on a kidnapping venture. Man-hwa is forced to choose between his career and his friend.
