Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Stephen Chiau stars in this madcap yarn about petty hood Vincent Han who is hired by the gangster to steal the will of his dead boss. At the same time, another mobster named Wei (Anthony Wong Chau-sang) has contracted out Rubbish Feng (Sandra Ng Kwan-yu) to pose as the dead crime boss' sister Fei-fei so she can swipe the will. Soon Vincent gets the idea to seduce Fei-fei, but in so doing, the two fall in love. Vincent and Rubbish eventually reveal their real motives right before their wedding. During their ceremony, Wei kidnaps the happy couple and makes off with a fist full of diamonds. As the thug makes his way to his waiting ship, he's convinced that he has it made. Of course, Vincent has repented his wicked ways and sets out to foil Wei's dark deeds. Director Anthony Chan Yau makes an appearance as an incompetent private dick.
