The Blind Way trilogy teamed Yu Ming and Sun Ma Si-tsang in a popular comic pairing that led to a long-running partnership. In the first film of the series, the pair stars as Cheung (Sun Ma Si-tsang) and Fu (Yu Ming), two rooftop home residents who become friends during their search for work. The two eventually find jobs in the factory thanks to the help of friends Hung (Lee Hung) and Chen (Hung Hung). However, Fu then wins the lottery and abandons his friends, only to have his fortune scammed away by con artists. From an honest laborer to a heartless man consumed by greed, Yu Ming gets to display a wide range of his acting talent here.
