Cheating is so rampant on the Mainland that Lao Zhang, a veteran plainclothes detective, leads a group of volunteers in Beijing to act as plainclothes civilian police. They hide in the crowds and wait for an opportunity to catch the culprits, who are mostly swindlers and thieves from the grassroots and take risks in desperation. Depending on his intuition, Lao Zhang successfully makes a number of arrests. Although his courageous acts are recognized, he is also being stalked.
