David Chiang Da-wei spins this maudlin, maladroit crime drama. Jacky (Jacky Cheung) is a junkie cartoonist who owes an obscene amount of money to the mob. Jacky's buddy Michael (Michael Wong Man-tak) -- a drug dealer who is in league with the very thugs whom Jacky is in trouble with -- saves his friend from being pulped. Instead of a brutal thrashing, Michael proposes to Jacky an offer that he can't refuse -- if he smuggles drugs to Holland, a chunk of his debt will be forgiven. He's all set to swallow condom after condom filled with smack until he learns that his emotionally fragile wife Carol (Crystal Kwok Kam-yan) tries to commit suicide. Jacky backs out of the deal, prompting the mob to renew its price on his head. When Michael's pure-hearted girlfriend Maggie (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk) tries to intervene, hoping to save her friend, all sorts of bad things start to happen.
