Synopsis

Pre-1997, a hero's story. 
One man; one car; tearing down the road like a flash of lightning.

The man; Jun Ma, Detective Sergeant of the Serious Crimes Unit. Like the sports car he controls, Jun is fast, precise and brutal - harnessing a horse power that fears to be unleashed. Jun detests crime and his lifelong nemeses are a triad gang of three brothers - eldest brother Archer, the bully; second brother Tony, the cool and calculated one; youngest brother Tiger, the fighter. Their skills have seen them grow steadily in the criminal world. In order to further infiltrate the gang and fight them from within, Jun has planted a mole, Wilson, who has managed to gain the complete trust of the gang and has become their personal bodyguard. Over the years Wilson has become more and more unhappy with Jun's impulsive and unruly style. Their disagreements in their way of working have led to constant arguments and altercations. In a heated battle between Jun and the triad gang, Wilson's dual role is exposed and he almost gets killed. Finally Jun intercepts Archer and arrests him and manages to force Tony and Tiger out of business. The cost is Wilson's left leg, leaving him handicapped for life.

Archer's trial is pending. In order to escape any convictions, Tony destroys all the evidence and kills all witnesses to their crimes. The day before Archer's trial, the only thing left that can bring them down is Wilson. Well aware of how well guarded Wilson is, nevertheless, Tiger turns up and blazes through the heavy police protection to wipe out their only witness.  Jun finds himself fighting off the attackers single-handedly but finally manages to kill Tiger and protect Wilson who, realizing that his girlfriend Julie is held hostage by the gang, leaves without Jun knowing.

Jun is suspended from duty over Tiger's killing and held for questioning. Unable to let go of his mission, he escapes and becomes a fugitive from the law. The day of the trial, Wilson appears as a witness but claims he has amnesia. Archer is set free. Having paid his dues, Wilson leaves immediately to retrieve his girlfriend. Jun, on the other hand, knowing full well that Tony would never let Wilson or his girlfriend get away alive, kidnaps Archer and uses him to bargain for Wilson's release.
The final showdown between Jun and Tony begins…
