  Long unemployed and stone-broke, Shen Jiaguang is dealt a further blow when his wife Lu Xiaoyin has fallen seriously ill and their son Xiaoguang has to quit school. The couple seek work as extras but the wife vomits blood on the film set. Shen turns to an old friend for help only to be accused of theft, rejected and humiliated in public. On returning home he is told of his wife's attempted suicide by neighbours who have saved her life. Distressed and desperate, Shen takes a gamble on life by staging a series of heists and robberies armed with the fake gun his son has found on the street. The life of the family of three changes for the better. The guilt-stricken robber, caught committing a robbery for one last time, calmly surrenders to the police to pay the price of crime
