The year was 1997. Cheung Sing Hei received a call from his sister that she was once again raped by their step father. He vowed to hunt the man down and "kill" him.
The next day, Sing Hei's step father, Tsang Siu Leung, was indeed found dead. Sing Hei was charged with his murder. During the trial, Tong Lap Yin (Sing Hei's cousin) took the stand as a witness. He claimed that he saw Sing Hei leaving the crime scene. Sing Hei was convicted of murder and sentenced to jail for 13 years.
Fast forward 10 years later, it's now 2007. Lap Yin is now the boss of an insurance firm - Honor Limited. His sister, Hoi Man is working with him. His mother Leng Ma has Parkinson's Disease. Together with their father, Fei Ba, they lived with their grandmother, and they have a pet dog, Ricky. Grandma reminded everyone that today is the day Sing Hei will be released from prison. They reflect that Sing Hei had a troubled childhood which was a result of his mother's second marriage.
Sing Hei was released from prison and he temporary stays with his sister. His brother-in-law recommend him a job in Tong Goon. The job comes with hostel benefits but he is not interested.
There was an anonymous parcel sent to Lap Yin's company. Lap Yin suspects it's Sing Hei's doing. Inside the parcel is a miniature coffin.
Sing Hei went to find his mother, Kit Yee. He asked her for money but she refused to give him any. She blamed him for killing her husband while he blamed her for wrecking the family. In their argument, she called him a "murderer". Sing Hei was disappointed and grabbed the money from her purse and left. Kit Yee then called Lap Yin for help. Lap Yin gave her HKD 5,000 to help her.
Sing Hei looked for Hoi Mun to borrow some money, but Lap Yin found out about it. Lap Yin was worried that Sing Hei may hurt his family. Lap Yin told Sing Hei that he still treat him as brothers but Sing Hei scoff at him.
Someone had killed Lap Yin's dog and tried to burn down his house. His company signage was painted red. The whole office was badly messed up. Lap Yin was adamant that it is Sing Hei's doing and decided to make a police report. Lap Yin also hired bodyguards for his family.
