Plot

The story continues from after Hui Man-keung's death in The Bund. Hui's best friend, Ting Lik, now controls the Shanghai triad world and he seeks to avenge Hui. Ting sends Chan Cheung-kwai to hunt down those responsible for murdering Hui, which leads to a series of killings.

At the same time, Ting is depressed after receiving news that his lover, Ching-ching, has become a nun. He decides to find another girlfriend, whom he has no romantic feelings for, just to cheer his mother up. By coincidence, Ting meets Chu Yin-yin and he falls in love with her. Just as their relationship is developing well, a gentlemanly and wealthy businessman named Tik Wan-chi appears and Yin-yin becomes attracted to Tik. The three of them are drawn into a complex love triangle.

Actually, Tik's immense wealth comes from secret financial support by the Japanese. Tik invites Ting to become his business partner and Ting reaps great rewards from their partnership. However, Tik's goal is to pave a path for the Japanese to take control of Shanghai.

Ting eventually learns of Tik's background after cooperating with him for some time. He is also shocked to discover that Tik is actually the mastermind behind Hui's assassination. Ting enters a dilemma on whether to kill Tik. He intends to kill Tik to avenge his friend and prevent the Japanese from taking over Shanghai. However, he is also hesitant when he sees that Yin-yin truly loves Tik and when he feels that he does not want to lose Tik as a business partner. Eventually, Ting decides to turn against Tik to uphold justice and his decision will stir up big trouble in Shanghai.
