Tokyo. Capital of the high-tech world. The tall buildings graze the sky and the streets are filled with people hurrying back and forth, oblivious to the world around them. Through this anthill of a modern metropolis walks a man in an impeccable suit. He is being followed. And he knows it.
The man heads down a small alley, so he can confront his followers undisturbed. They turn out to be a bunch of gangsters who immediately try to grab him. But the man is lightning quick. He disables them with equal amounts of force and style, using only his umbrella.
Upon returning home to his office the man notices that someone else has been in the room, and sure enough, moments later he is once again attacked by a group of men, lying in wait. And once again he must apply his elegant moves to get out of a tough spot. Why is this man the target of such vicious attacks? To answers this, we must go to the city of lights, Las Vegas.
Here we find a beautiful girl Macy (Kelly Chen), who anxiously awaits her future husband, Takahashi. Everything is set: The church is booked, she’s wearing a gorgeous wedding dress, and a few of her friends are standing by her side. Only the groom is missing, but as the seconds relentlessly tick away, one thing becomes painfully obvious: He’s not coming, and Macy is forced to cancel the wedding.
Furious she returns to her apartment in Hong Kong, where she runs into the proverbial fly in the ointment, in the shape of Yung (Eking Cheng) the interior decorator who refurbished the couple’s apartment. The last check he received bounced like a rubber ball, so he’s here to get his money in cash, and he won’t leave until he gets it.
But Macy has no time for such banalities. She decides to go to Japan to track down her boyfriend. Yung is not about to be brushed off that easily, so against her wishes he tags along. This mismatched couple has hardly landed in Japan, before they too are attacked. Yung, a highly skilled martial artist, expertly manages to fend off the foes. But then a cute little leather clad babe arrives in a sports car to take Yung and Macy to safety. She takes them to meet her boss, whom we know as the elegant fighter from the opening scene. After some proper introductions the man - whose name is Lin - explains that he’s a private investigator. He was originally hired to trail the wife of Ito, leader of the deadly Kobe gang, who suspects she’s cheating on him.
And now comes the shocker: Macy’s would-be husband is the man with whom Ito’s wife has an affair. Now Macy has to face the fact that she never really knew her fiancé. But alas, more surprises await. As the plot thickens it becomes clear that no one it this little mix is actually telling the truth...
