The story takes place in the English countryside
where Gloria Yip
is attending university and two other HK male students who are best friends
both fall in love with her. Though this triangle is important to the story
, it soon shifts to the story of Yip’s family circle who also reside in
the UK. Her extremely wealthy step father is Waise Lee, a vicious criminal,
Tony Leung Kar Fai is his right hand man and Carrie Ng is Waise’s mistress.
It soon becomes clear that all is not well at home - as we see Carrie seductively
eating tomatoes and playing hanky panky under the table with Tony while
the father is eyeing Gloria in a very unfatherly manner. Tony has a good
and comes across very well as a basically honorable man divided in his
loyalties to his crazy boss and to what he knows to be right. It all comes
together in a violent clash.
