Synopsis

On the eve of Chinese Dynastical millennium, a score of Triad gangs converge on a warehouse. They all seek to hold, as the clock strikes midnight, an ancient Chinese artefact, which promises to the bearer, at the fateful hour, prosperity for the next 1,000 years.

At the centre of this decidedly dangerous situation are two small time crooks who have been unwittingly conned into 'caretaking' the gem until midnight. They have no inkling of the gem's real significance, or why so many sadistic people are determined to possess it... but they're slowly finding out!

The film is a twist of British film noir with old style Kung Fu. It is a story of deception and gullibility in the highest degree.

We follow John and Jerry through their absurd banter as they twist and turn through the maze of events that unravel before them. In the face of danger...
