Story
Yamada Kenta is a director filming a documentary which follows a Japanese talent Elie in Hong Kong. Kenta and assistant director Hirakawa Aya keep being at the mercy of her wilfulness from beginning to end. Because of this, the producer Akutsu makes a dig at Kenta. While they are filming at an eatery the next day, Elie gets into a quarrel with men around her. Daniel, an employee, suddenly shoves the men out of the way, punches Kenta who tries to restrain him and takes Elie away somewhere. Amid the chaos at the scene, a woman called Imoto Maki appears in front of Kenta. Maki has come from Japan to meet a man whom she had been communicating with on a Hong Kong matching website although they still have not seen each other. Meanwhile, Elie’s kidnapper, Daniel, who is a local, soon realises that he had mistaken her for his girlfriend. In fact, Maki lacks self-confidence in her looks and has been using an image of Elie as her icon, leading Daniel to assume that Elie is the person he had been wanting to meet the whole time when he saw her. The local mafia also intervenes in this case which escalates unexpectedly. These five people who have never had any connection, meet through this incident and end up having to run about the streets of Hong Kong towards an unexpected goal.
