Plot[edit]

Lam Wai-tung has developed cancer. In order to raise money for his younger brother, Wai-leung, to study medicine overseas, he steals some diamonds for smuggler Chiu Ying-kau. After the robbery, Wai-tung hides the real diamonds for himself and gives fake diamonds to Chiu, who then finds out and kills Wai-tung. In order to recover the diamonds, Chiu sets a scheme and makes Wai-leung a murder suspect and arranges his Japanese female subordinate, Miko, to hide him and nurse his gunshot wounds. Under Miko's attentive treatment, Wai-leung heals and they establish a profound friendship.

Wai-leung's good friend, Sergeant Ben Kwok, was sent to investigate the case and later he and Wai-leung stumble across the diamonds that Wai-tung hid. Miko snatches the diamonds and Chiu arrives and forces Wai-leung to hand the diamonds over. When he refuses, Chiu plans to kill them. When Miko leaves, she sees Chiu's henchmen on the road and returns to help Wai-leung and fights with Chiu, where Miko was wounded by Chiu, who was eventually killed by Wai-leung.
