At the beginning the movie looks distinctly unpromising. Kwan, a cocky young man, speaks to the camera explaining that, in order to succeed, you became a jockey at the Hong Kong Jockey Club or you went to Taiwan. In a theatrical performance in a brothel, he attempts to persuade the brothel madam Chi to give him a chance in the business. The madam was one of those little girl type characters, so beloved of HK movies, with a pout and whining voice ... surely she would not have succeeded in this business like that. He takes one of the girls May under his wing and turns her into one of the most successful girls in the business. He also falls in with a girl whose gambling addiction was her downfall and she too becomes a prostitute to repay her debts. Inevitably the two girls fall in love with Kwan.
