In the 1970s, the Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption (HKICAC) was established. Its mission to root out corrupt detectives marked a new era in colonial Hong Kong.

Lui Lok (Aaron Kwok) and Nam Kong (Tony Leung), once upstanding police officers, sought to change the status quo and built a corrupt empire by controlling organized crimes, eventually rising to the position of Chief Chinese Detective. However, the power struggle between the triad and the police caused constant chaos. Lui Lok’s wife, Tsai Zhen (Du Juan), was targeted by the triad for aiding her husband’s rise to power. Even the most loyal detectives, Fat-Bee (Michael Chow) and Yim Hung (Patrick Tam), were nearly swayed. A new chapter in history began when HKICAC issued wanted notices for Lui Lok and Nam Kong, signaling the end of their reign. The winds of change have blown and Hong Kong is no longer what it once was.
