Summary
When a live TV news crew broadcasts an embarrassing defeat of Hong Kong's police department by just five bank robbers, public opinion of the force plummets and the department vows to capture the robbers at any cost. Detective Cheung accidentally stumbles upon the fugitives hiding out in an abandoned building, and soon Yuen, the notorious leader of the five-man gang, finds himself and his crew under siege by thousands of police officers. Seeing this as an opportunity to restore the public's faith in the police department, Inspector Rebecca turns the stakeout into a breaking news show, with live updates beamed out to a transfixed Hong Kong. But the plan may backfire when attempts to manage the press come undone as hostages are taken, true identities are unknown and the building contains not one gang but two.--Container
