As a con man who actually takes professional pride in his work as a psychic scam artist, Man Chun was just released from prison. Both his uncle and girlfriend try to set his path straight again, but he revels his old days of performing rituals to tell fortunes and 'heal' people. Having a clear conscience and defending his affirmations on being a charlatan, he reconnects with his master and continues with the old trade. While Man Chun is addicted to the psychic world and thriving, the patience of his loved ones is wearing thin. When unexpected circumstances unfold, will Man Chun retain his faith in his vocation?
