In 1978 in Hong Kong, a grisly murder takes place. Eight years later, on a Macao beach, kids discover the severed hands of a fresh victim. A squadron of coarse, happy-go-lucky cops investigate, and suspicion falls on Wong Chi Hang, the new owner of Eight Immortals Restaurant, which serves delicious pork bao. The hands belong to the missing mother of the restaurant's former owner; he and his family have disappeared; staff at the restaurant continue to go missing; and, Wong can't produce a signed bill of sale: but there's no evidence. The police arrest Wong and try to torture him into a confession. Can they make him talk? And what was in those pork bao?
I remember seeing this on laser disc. Anthony Wong played a real psycho in this film. This film always comes to mind whenever I frequent Chinatown and order a cha siu bao.

Thanks for this! Remember watching this during the 90s. Anthony Wong got a best actor award for this movie if I remembered correctly. Well, he has mellowed since then. I just wish he could take up more of such psychopathic killer roles. It fits him to a T.
