Champion competitive marksman Ken Kwan (Louis Koo) encounters an armored van robbery. He sees a policeman being held hostage and shoots and kills four of the robbers. One of the robbers escapes, and the policeman survives. The case is handled by Officer Jerry Chong (Daniel Wu), a fellow competitive shooting enthusiast whom Ken has recently defeated in a match. The two men had befriended each other after the competition. Although Ken’s actions were controversial in heavily gun-controlled Hong Kong, the court found him not guilty, and he was released a hero. Soon after, Ken is attacked by the escaped robber Pang Tao. Their confrontation opens up a very different background story. It brings about a myriad of lies, traps, and changes in a relationship as Jerry and Ken try to outsmart each other.
