Simon Yam Tat-wah stars in this action flick as two men named Chow -- Chow Tak-kan is a nebbish geek with bad teeth while Chow Man-heng is a slick confidence man. When the latter is being chased by the cops following a botched robbery, he plows into a car driven by the former. In the chaos that ensues, one Chow dies gruesomely while the other is injured, leaving his features horribly obscured. The police are convinced that the survivor is Man-heng and insist that he committed the robbery in spite of the patient's strenuous objections. Soon Chow finds himself in a mental hospital with cops itching for a confession and a band of gangsters looking for Man-heng's ill-gotten loot.
