Crack policeman 426 Damon (Jason Pai Piao) faces this eternal dilemma of an undercover, and being a sentimental person does not help. He is ordered to infiltrate the underworld but becoming a triad member himself makes him think that there are righteous people among those with whom he has shed blood and done bad deeds. Long before his undercover counterparts in later films such as Man on the Brink (1981) and Infernal Affairs (2002), he finds himself on shaky moral ground and is torn between loyalty and justice when he is given the order arrest his gangster “brothers”.
