One day, their gang boss and creditor Brother Long (Lung Shao Hua) notices Wenxi's script and decides to invest in the film. The only condition is that the heroine must be played by the boss's girl Shanny (Yao Yi Ti). Wenxi and BS jump at the chance to finally shoot their movie and party hard in celebration. However, the next day, they find their leading lady dead in a pool at the party! Afraid to reveal the truth to Brother Long, the two decide to go ahead and complete the film using her corpse.
