After a night of drinking, Tang becomes the prime suspect of a mysterious murder, and goes on the run with Qing. While trying to evade the police, many colorful characters from Chinatown emerge. How can Tang and Qing clear their names within seven days, while being pursued by both the cops and the mafia?
