Plot[edit]

Celia (Jacklyn Wu) illegally enters Hong Kong from mainland China and works as a prostitute in order to earn money to save her younger brother from prison. While working for the first time, Celia witnesses the murder of a triad leader and gets framed for the murder. As triad members are chasing her, she is rescued by Frank (Aaron Kwok), a member of a biker gang. Frank came from a wealthy but broken family and always feels depressed. However, he later becomes inspired by Celia's upbeat personality and the two of them fall in love. Celia then leaves Frank in order to avoid bringing him into trouble with the triads, but Frank unconditionally sacrifices his life to save her.

Reception[edit]

Critical[edit]

Compared to the previous installment, the film did not fare as well with critics. Love HK Film writes "While the first film at least had some thematic and dramatic justification for its tragic resolution, this one just seems to follow a similar pattern to get a rise out of this audience."[1]

Box office[edit]

The film grossed HK$9,146,482 at the Hong Kong box office during its theatrical run from 10 to 30 June 1993 in Hong Kong.
