Triad boss Kwan (Francis Ng), wounded by Japanese associates, arrives at the hospital where, with voiceover and flashbacks, he recalls how he was betrayed by his boss, friend, and girlfriend. After telling this tale, however, he reveals it was all a lie and outlines the brutal truth, describing those he killed during his rise in Hong Kong's criminal society. The title translates as "Mongkok Top Dog," a reference to Hong Kong's criminal district. Shown in 1997 at the Vancouver Film Festival.
