Set in the surreal landscape of urban, nighttime Hong Kong, this film follows two separate but simultaneous stories. The first follows a hitman (Leon Lai), who’s life as an assassin is slowly losing its allure. Complicating things is his beautiful partner (Michele Reis, former Miss Hong Kong) who has developed a romantic obsession with him, although the two have never met in the three years they’re worked together. 
In another part of the city, He (Takeshi Kaneshiro), a mute, boyish ex‐convict, makes his living in an unusual way, involving breaking into establishments after hours. Still living with his father, who runs the Chungking Mansions hotel, the restless Ho falls for Cherry (Charlie Yeung), a woman getting over a recent breakup.
