The movie features guest appearances by Eric Tsang, Corey Yuen and Lau Kar-leung. Warner Bros. has included the film in the catalogue of Warner Archive Collection.[1]


Lo Tung and his friend Malted Candy are pedicab drivers working on the streets of Macau. Lo Tung falls in love with a baker named Ping and Malted Candy falls in love with a prostitute named Hsaio Tsui. The problem is that both of the objects of their affections are working under cruel and lecherous bosses. The pair must somehow find a way to win the ladies' hearts and free them from their unpleasant jobs.
