Supercool mobster Mark (Chow Yun Fat) is a man of honour in a world of crime. His partner Ho (Ti Lung) is having second thoughts because kid brother Kit (Leslie Cheung) is an ambitious cop. Kit remains blissfully ignorant until Ho is double-crossed, their father is murdered and Ho is imprisoned. Mark swears to avenge his friend, but his right leg is shattered in the ensuing shoot out, a legendary scene of sensationally choreographed gunplay. When Ho leaves the slammer he find the crippled Mark reduced to scrubbing dirt off the boss's stretch limo. Both are determined to go straight, but neither Kit nor the crimelords are done with them yet. Finally, Mark, Ho and Kit must face their destiny in a blazing crosfire of conflicting loyalties and hot lead. Who will survive.....?
