Steven Lo Kit-sing and Joseph Chi Chong Chavez deliver this straight-ahead gangster flick about a lowly parking valet who be rockets to the top of the underworld. While he and his buddies aren't "borrowing" his clients cars for joyrides around Hong Kong island, Chan Yiu-hing (Simon Yam Tat-wah) runs afoul of local crime boss Lam (Ben Lam Kwok-bun). After a particularly brutal working over by Lam's goons, Chan decides to start his own security business, which soon sends him on his way to gangland glory. Along the way, Chan has a fling with bad girl stripper Kitty (Yvonne Yung Hung) while falling in love with good girl Mil Mil (Marianne Chan Miu-ying). Chan eventually promises Mil Mil that he will settle down and live a quiet life in Canada. Unfortunately, Chan's past soon catches up with him.
