Synopsis

A talented card player, Chai Foon-Cheung (Bobby Au Yeung), entered a worldwide poker tournament when he was 18 years old and was regarded as a favorite. However, due to the follies of youth, Cheung was seduced by Lam Siu-Yan (Florence Kwok), who was his rival competitor, Kiu Ching-Chor’s (Michael Miu) girlfriend. Due to the distraction, Cheung also became separated from his three year old younger brother. In the final tournament, Cheung could not concentrate on his game and forfeited the competition. Since then, Cheung's life had turned up-side down and he became a gambling addict in The Philippines. Fate decided that Cheung was able to bring his life back up and become good friends with him, being united by Chow Fook-Wing (Benz Hui). Cheung works as a gardener at the Onisac casino and discovers that Chor is the casino's CEO.

One night, Li Ching-Wan (Jessica Hsuan) gambles at the casino. Chor and Cheung bets whether Wan will leave the casino. Cheung loses the bet and must return to Hong Kong to start a new life.
