This melodramatic tearjerker is about an orphan boy in Hong Kong who grows up to attend law school in England and then decides to go back to the business capital of Asia to work. The young man's girlfriend comes from an influential family, and she is able to get him set up in one of Hong Kong's best law firms. As he is settling in and adjusting to his good fortune, circumstances lead him to take on the defense of an elderly prostitute accused of murder. After he meets the woman, he is convinced she is innocent -- and little does he know then where this particular case will take him.
