    • Man (Ekin Cheng) and Kit (Ekin Cheng) are twins, they look utterly alike. The two always exchanged their identities in childhood in order to make funs of other people.

      When they were eight, their parents divorced. Man lived with his mother staying in Hong Kong while Kit migrated to Thailand with his father. Since then, they have never mentioned they are twins to anyone, even their closest friends.

      One day at their late twenties, Kit back to Hong Kong visit Man. They still look utterly alike. They start to share their lives in past ten years. During the talk, Kit suddenly wants to have a drive. Without saying a word, Man passes his ID and driving license to Kit. They exchange their identities again. But they can’t believe that this time they may not to able to exchange their identities back.

      During this drive, Kit has a car accident and he is temporarily in hemiplegia. Even worse, a foreign passer-by was killed in the accident.

He knows that Kit has borrowed a huge sum of money from King (Dayo Wong). Jane and Man want to settle the case. However, the harder they are trying to do, the more funny they become in front of the gangsters, the bigger trouble they are getting into. They are now in deep shit and in great danger. Who’s gonna help them?

      In Hong Kong, Kit finally meets Man’s friend, Ching-chung (Jan Lamb) who indeed has an ambiguous relationship with Man... Kit, as the head of gangsters, has a really hard time of his live being comforted by Ching-chung but he can’t let Ching-chung know his real identity. He knows Man and Jane are in great danger, but what else he can do?
