The Ten Brothers Motion Picture Enterprise Co. completed this film within a few days, with a star-studded cast including Ng Chofan, Pak Yin, Lam Fung, Tso Tat-wah, Yu So Chow, Yam Kim-fai and Yu Lai-zhen, and the ten directors playing cameo roles as security guards. Leung Sing-po, together with assistants Cheung Ying, Woo Fung, Cecilia Lee Fung-sing and Law Yim-hing, runs a company that helps people to solve their problems. Cheung is hired to pose as a wealthy businessman, and ends up retrieving a huge stolen diamond. Woo Fung pretends to be a psychologist to get close to his estranged girlfriend and ends up winning over her heart. After going undercover in a nightclub, Cecilia Lee Fung-sing breaks up a mafia gang and helps to save a girl. Thanks to the comic acting of the ensemble cast, the “omnibus” plot has plenty of gags and is highly watchable.
