The time has come, as it does every two years, for the senior members of Hong Kong's oldest Triad, The Wo Shing Society, to elect a new chairman. Fierce rivalries emerge between the two eligible candidates. Lok Simon Yam), respected by the Uncles is the favourite to win. But his rival Big D (Tony Leung Ka-Fai) will stop at nothing to change this, including going against hundreds of years of Triad tradition and influencing the vote with money and violence.
When Wo Shing's ancient symbol of leadership, the Dragon's Head Baton, goes missing, a ruthless struggle for power erupts and the race to retrieve the Baton threatens to tear Wo Shing in two.
Can Wo Shing balance their traditional brotherhood ways with the cut-throat modern world of 21st century business?
