Synopsis: International narcotics officer CHOI (starring Eddie CHEUNG), has been demoted by his superior officer MA (starring Simon YAM) to local duties after partaking in bribery in the line of work. He’s assigned to a death scene investigation by YAN (starring Maggie SHIU) where the deceased, YUNG’s (starring Tony HO), body had laid undiscovered for eight years, and only recently discovered by maintenance workers during the renovation of an old block of flat. CHOI looks into CHAO (starring Timmy HUNG) as the prime suspect, and linking it to adultery with YUNG’s widow PING (starring Dada CHAN) as an accomplice. The case soon comes under scrutiny by a high-ranking court prosecutor SANTOS (starring Joe Junior). Under his inquiries, the investigator becomes the investigated, and CHOI’s actions fall under suspicion as all manner of inconsistencies come to light from his statement. YUNG was a man of many vices, with few crimes left untouched by his hand – rape, drug smuggling, blackmail and working alongside notorious gangster FAI WAI (starring Suet LAM). Has CHOI framed a pair of innocents? How did this case end up becoming an unsolved one? Who was responsible for burying this case?
