Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Tsui Hark spins this quickly produced all-star spectacular. Ditzy hooker Bai Xuehua (Anita Yuen Wing-yee) is deep in debt with gangster Dinosaur (Chung King-fai) and has no way to pay it off. When he suggests that she work off the money by plying her trade for a five-year stint in the Middle East, she balks and hides from his thugs in a church. There she confesses her predicament to the handsome Father Zhong (Leslie Chueng Kwok-wing). Her story moves Zhong, and he vows to save Xuehua and her fellow working girls from life on the street while keeping his identity a secret. Coming off a relationship with a complete heel, Xuehua soon falls in love with Zhong and the priest soon finds he's having feelings for her in return. Things really start to get ugly though when Dinosaur catches up with her.
