Lee Man, a member of a notorious counterfeit ring, is arrested in Thailand and extradited to Hong Kong. Thanks to the renowned painter Yuen Man, the police offers Lee a deal: Reveal the identity of »the Painter«, the charismatic leader of the counterfeit ring, and you’ll be released with Yuen’s help. Lee has no choice but to consent and tell his story:
In the 90s, Lee and Yuen lived as lovers in Vancouver and tried to make a name for themselves in the art world. But success was a long time coming and Lee was forced to earn his living by forging pictures. When Lee witnessed the brutal methods of his partner Painter, he desperately tried to extricate himself from the Painter’s influence. Will the Painter come out of hiding to avenge Lee for his betrayal? Or will he disappear forever?
