Synopsis
The passionate journey of three wretched souls who fight to hang on to their dreams. Sze-To, a judo champion who has unexpectedly abandoned the sport, is now an alcoholic pub manager. He spends his days in video game parlours and illegal gambling joints, squandering all the money he manages to steal from a former opponent turned triad boss. In his dead-end run towards self-destruction, Sze-To encounters potential redemption in the unusual forms of aspiring pop singer Mona and the obstinate Tony, who challenges him to a fight and who will not be put off by his initial refusal.
