Nip Jun was the right-hand man of prominent mafia leader Koo Cheung Seng in Old Shanghai. Under the influence of his wife, who had been married to Jun by Cheung Seng, Jun decided to retire from the fighting for a normal life with his wife and daughter. Just when the family was about to leave Shanghai, Jun’s wife died of a car accident. The tragedy struck Jun very hard, and although he remained in Shanghai, he successfully retired from a life of bloodshed to manage a restaurant with his daughter Man Wa, his follower Kow Jai, along with several other servants and disciples.
After several years, Jun figured out by chance that his wife’s death had been caused by Koo Cheung Seng in an attempt to keep him from retirement. This discovery began a series of clashes between the two former partners, costing more lives and relationships along the way. At the end of the day, Jun killed Cheung Seng with a gunshot and finally managed to utterly leave bloodshed behind him.
In the meantime, Jun had met A Siu, the widow of a man Jun had formerly killed. Jun treated Siu generously out of guilt, and romantic attractions ensued between the two as Siu became a helper in Jun’s business. When Siu realized that Jun was her husband’s killer, however, she found it impossible to accept him, no matter how many incidents and years elapsed.
The story is also complicated by the character of Kow Jai, an orphan mentored by Jun. Unlike Jun, Kow Jai had chosen to enter the service of Koo Cheung Seng and his son Sam. After seeing through the corruption and cruelty of his masters’ ways, Kow Jai had decided to work as a spy, secretly protecting Jun against Cheung Seng’s evil intentions. His undercover work cost him dearly, and he was nearly murdered by Cheung Seng. At the end, Kwo Jai recovered from his wounds to find love with Man Wa, who had ultimately chosen him over Sam in their love triangle.
