Li Bo-Yee (Frankie Lam), the physic; Lai Yuek-Yee (Raymond Lam), the doctor; and Yip Mung-Sik (Tavia Yeung), are on the mission to look for five talented fighters.

Unfortunately, one of them is killed, forcing Frankie Lam's character to replace him.

Meanwhile, Lai Leuk-Yee meets the love of his life, Yin Ye-Loi (Selena Li), who also has a secret identity. Because of this secret identity, the White Force does not like Yin Ye-Loi. One of the White Force attacks Selena, causing Lai Leuk-Yee to join the Black Force...
