Billy Tang Hin-sing directs this wild and woolly gangster flick that was part of the goo wak jai craze of the mid-'90s. The film centers on down-and-out teens Hu (Michael Tse Tin-wah) and Yu-long (Louis Koo Tin-lok) who are repeatedly victimized by local gang leader Short-Sighted (Simon Lui Yu-yueng) and his buddies. When Hu's girlfriend Yi (Gigi Lai Chi) gets raped by some of Short-Sighted's hoods, they join a rival triad group run by the psychotic Boss King (Elvis Tsui Kam-kong). Hu quickly becomes a player in the gang by hacking off the hand of one of Short-Sighted's top men. Meanwhile, Yu-long finds himself being seduced by older woman Shan (Teresa Mak Kar-kei) while Yi, tired of being mistreated by Hu, dumps him in favor of his boss.
