In post-1997 Hong Kong, even the long-established Wo Shing Triad Society has to succumb to the power of China. The entrepreneurial sect leader Jimmy (Louis Koo) seems to be the perfect candidate to lead the Society into the new Millennium. Only problem is, Jimmy wants out.
When Jimmy’s business venture in China stalls, the Mainland government approaches him with an offer: Become Wo Shing’s next Chairman and lead the Society according to Mainland government’s wishes. In return Jimmy will enjoy full government backing of his business empire. As other candidates engage in bitter struggle for the Chairman position, Jimmy begins to understand the real price he has to pay for the deal.
