Vowing to do more good deeds, Wah gets the chance when Madam Rose’s daughter comes to town with her wealthy fiancé. Fearing her poverty will bring disgrace on her daughter, Wah helps Madam Rose. In the midst of a gang war, and being perused by police, Wah aids Madam Rose through an elaborate deception in order to ensure her daughter’s smooth engagement.
