Invited to New York City to attend his uncle, Tang Ren’s (Wang Bao Qiang) wedding, Qin Feng (Liu Hao Ran) expects his trip to be a pleasant one.

Together, the three set out to find the villain responsible for this grisly string of murders. But with a group of detectives competing against them and a mob of thugs breathing down their necks, the job will be anything but easy. Will these detectives be able to find the murderer before he strikes again?
