Comments: I don't remember much about this film except for most of the actors who I kind of like disappointing me. I usually attribute that to bad script and direction. You can sort of see the incredulousness on the actor's faces when they aren't really committed to their characters or motivations. Anthony Wong and Tony Leung Ka Fai seem particularly uncomfortable. I couldn't get into the mystery thriller story because the people acting it out kept getting in the way.

Summary: Ling (Angelica Lee) is a fashion columnist whose ex-boyfriend Peter died in a car accident. Debt collectors Fei (Anthony Wong) - an ex-cop and Ma (Eric Kot) are witnesses on the scene and Fei is certain that Peter's death is more than just an accident. The weird and suspicious act that Chief Editor Tsang (Tony Leung Ka Fai) recemtly displays convinces Ling of what Fei says. Ling pleads for the assistance of both Fei and Ma. With newspaper photographer Kei (Edison Chen) also volunteering to help. The quartet embarks on a journey to track down the truth.
