Macau, 1998, just before the city is returned to Chinese control. Rival gangs are realigning themselves for the forthcoming changes in a city of lucrative opportunity. Old gang members find themselves on opposite sides in a sensational extended opening shoot-out, when two are commissioned to kill a man by their Hong Kong boss and two are there to save him. Exhausted by their battle, the four hitmen and their intended victim relax and decide to re-unite under a rival gang boss, seeking a better pay-off involving a ton of gold.
