In addition to playing a Taoist priest, Ko Lo-chuen also performs two songs in this hilarious farce about nine residents of a shared flat, among them The Landlady (Lydia Sum), The Taxi-dancer (Tina Ti), the blacksmiths (Tam Bing-man, Chan Leung-chung), The Deceptive Prophet (Chow Kat) and the Tailor (Yu Ming). A comic battle of wits and pranks breaks out when The Priest and The Prophet burn The Dancer's underwear to fend off misfortune. However, when the flat is threatened by a local gang, the feuding residents put their battle aside and unite to defend their home from the hoodlums.
