In this action-packed comedy from Hong Kong, Mr. Wong is a notorious con man who has bilked hundred of people out of their savings over the course of a long career, but no one has been able to put him behind bars. Pauline Wu (Joey Yung) is a woman with a personal grudge against Wong, since he took her father for a large sum of money many years ago; determined to get revenge, she teams up with another con artist, Ferrari (Nicholas Tse), who has reasons of his own for wanting to get even with Wong. However, while Ferrari would like to pull one over on the master, he's also trying to stay one step ahead of an inept police detective (Karl Maka) who is hot on his trail. Ferrari and Pauline enlist the services of strong-arm man Sze (So Yau-Pang), and together they plot a major scam that will nail both Wong and his daughter. But is it possible Wong could be turning the tables on them?
