Synopsis
When a live TV news crew broadcasts an embarrassing defeat of Hong Kong's police department by just five bank robbers, public opinion of the force plummets and the department vows to capture the robbers at any cost. So when Detective Cheng accidentally stumbles upon the five bank robbers hiding out in an abandoned building, Yuen, the ultra-cool leader of the five-man gang, suddenly finds himself and his partners under siege by thousands of police officers. Sensing an opportunity to restore the public's faith in the police department, Inspector Rebecca turns the stakeout into a breaking news show, with live updates beamed out to a transfixed Hong Kong. But she soon discovers how difficult it can be to manage the press when hostages are involved, true identities are unknown, and the building contains not one gang but two.
