Little Ball is a retired police officer who works as a beverage server in a bar. However, he has not changed his bad habits of being loud-mouth and compulsive drinking and gambling. Fortunately, he is helped and taken care by his confidant Hung. One time, Ball unintentionally got his son Dee, a Special Duties Unit officer, into a dispute with triad leader Ngan Kwan, nearly destroying his son's career.
At the same time, Dee also meets Heidi during a police operation and a romantic relationship ensued between them. However, things do not go well for long when Heidi is discovered to be Ngan's daughter. Ngan forces Dee to resign from his job, but Dee has a strong sense of righteousness and firmly rejects Ngan and proceeds to go on vacation with Heidi on Lantau Island. Seeing how Dee disregards him and also thinking that he is eloping with his daughter, Ngan orders his underlings to find and kill Dee. When Ball hears of this, he goes to plead Ngan, but he gets beaten instead. Later, a group of killers surround Dee in the streets and when he fell into danger, the wounded Ball appears and sacrifices his life to rescue his son. At this time, Dee realizes his father's love for him and vows to seek venegance on Ngan.

I was dying to watch this movie many years ago but not able to find it, finally i found it :) This is the very first movie of Sammi Cheng~ Sammi is so fresh and pretty, her acting not that good yet but was also nominated as the Best New Actress in 1992, so proud of her.
The whole storyline is not bad, Ng Man Tat is good no matter in comedy or even in this kind of serious film~ Jacky Cheung looks young and cute as well, but of course the acting was kinda not stable during that year too
