The story takes place amid the Wo Shing, the most venerable triad of Hong Kong. The Uncles, the elders who rule the crime organization, are about to elect a new chief executive officer.

The two men will engage in a bloodthirsty struggle when the ancestral symbol of Wo Shing power, a Dragon's Head Baton, disappears.
