However, Cheung's tough handling style, has attracted many complaints towards him. Cheung's new superior, Chief Inspector Lo Tai-wai (Ricky Wong) is dissatisfied with him, accusing him of disobeying superior orders, while also frequently clamped by Cheung.

One day, criminal Judge (Shing Fui-On) is released from prison, and leads his former associates Bull (Tommy Wong), Chicken (William Ho) and Smut (Victor Hon) to prepare a major crime spree plan. Meanwhile, car thief Boy (Stephen Chow) regards Judge as his idol and willingly serves him, but in the course of a car theft incident, he is arrested by Cheung.

Unexpectedly, Judge and his associates use the stolen car to rob an illegal underground casino, killing some customers in the process. Boy is innocently involved in the robbery case.
