A Chinese policewoman and her sidekick A-Sheng, bothe die-hard communists, are on a mission to escort a criminal hiding in mainland China, to Hong Kong. Wu Wei-kuo, a Hong Kong police officer is assigned to show them around town. Wu's father is loyal to the Taiwanese government. Many jokes ensue based on the characters' cultural and ideological clashes. Literally translated, 'biaojie' means 'older female cousin', one of the Hong Kongers' nicknames for the mainland Chinese whose cultural differences single them out from the locals and are the source of much laughter.
