Ho Tung (James Yi Lui) is a young man pretending to be a master of martial arts while running a school for young kids. After being challenged by a local fighter and barely escaping through pure luck, Ho leaves his martial arts school and wanders the countryside. He soon gets involved with a thief (Michael Lai Siu-Tin) and their scam lands them in a local town who has gone crazy looking for gold in the surrounding hills. Ho manages to stumble onto the real cache of gold and becomes a target soon thereafter. Seeing Ho is an utter buffoon, the mayor (Wong San) and his advisor (Ngai Ping-Ngo) make him the town's security chief, hoping they'll gain his confidence and lead them to the gold. Soon everyone is after Ho and the thief, using everything from sex to murder in order to get the riches hidden in the hills.
