    Interpol Chief Superintendant Kenny (Bobby Au Yeung) is meticulous and a high flier in the force. CID Superintendant Fai (Wong He) holds no bars and puts his all into his work with the courage of his convictions and is the omen for crime. They both meet with hi-tech criminal Kiwi (Charmaine Sheh) and for their own reasons are pursuing a contract killer named Jackal...

    Kenny's reason is because of the murder of Fat Kuk who is the mastermind behind an international criminal ring and Fai's reason is down to vengeance for the murder of his fiancee. With their very different personalities, they take their own course of action to capture Jackal and get in each others way...

    On the other hand, Kiwi's happy nature breaks down the barriers between Kenny and his daughter Cherry (Jenny Shing) and Kenny gradually finds himself falling for her, unfortunately Kiwi only has eyes for Fai and she will give anything to help him reach his goal.

    In the end, Fai finds his revenge, but...

Before he sets his will, Chuen finds private investigator Shum Long Cheung (Deric Wan) to investigate her and see whether she is true to him.

One day, the police arrive to arrest Cheung and charge him with the murder of Chuen. Cheung insists that on the day of the murder, he was with Wah, but she refutes this. Cheung was under the impression that he was controlling Wah and only then does he realise that all the time he was falling into her trap! Chuen has died, but the scheming old man had created a death warrant to gain his revenge on those who plot against him...

    cul-de-sac
    Cantonese: Chun Ji Dai Bong Ga

    Cast: Steven Ma Chun Wai, Ben Ng Ngai Cheung, Elaine Ng Yee Lei, May Kwong Man Shun, Ngai Wai, Lau Dan

    "A Rich Merchant kidnaps his own son, what is this all for?"

    Serious Crime Squad CID Sung Ka Fai (Steven Ma) is has great respect for his brother-in-law Shum Chi Leung (Ng Ngai Cheung). The reason for Fai's admiration is not because of Leung's success in business, but is because of his love and protection towards Fai's sister Hiu Ying (Elaine Ng). Leung also looked after her family in the past, funding Fai to complete his university study.

    Leung asks Fai to help him look after his business and just as Fai is about to resign, the son of stock market hunter Kwok Wai Fung (Lau Dan) is kidnapped, together with Leung's son. For professional and personal reasons, Fai hopes to catch the kidnappers. On the surface, the case seems to be connected with Triad linked Ching Wai (Ngai Wai). The kidnappers demand that Leung himself goes to pay the ransom so he follows the instructions and throws the box with the ransom inside into the sea, where it disappears...

    Finally, Leung's son is rescued, but Fung's son is murdered. Not long later, the police also find the body of Wai. Who is the real mastermind behind this?

    FAQ: What is a telemovie?

    A telemovie is TVB's own movie production, bringing together some of their own stars for a one-off 90 minute episode of a self-contained story.

    They were popular in the early 90's when a great number of these were churned out, aired at the weekends in Hong Kong and conveniently placed on one video for the overseas market who liked them because they saved the tedium (and cost) of renting the long drawn out series.

    It all stopped for a while, but filming started again a couple of years ago and once again they are back!

    The range of topics in the stories is vast and the quality varies between the different directors and producers, but the majority are worth checking out as they serve as a trial size version (almost like pilots) for possible full length series spinoffs.

    Hope that's answered the question for you!
