An unkind developer Tsang Siu-Chi and his agent just bought two old buildings with tricks.  His rival developer, Mr. Hung secured the other two blocks, both of them aimed to buy all four to build a hotel, but they were reluctant to cooperate. Jacky coincidentally knew that Kuwait Prince Alibaba was looking for a partner company in Hong Kong to rebuild his country after war, so he advised Tsang to flatter Prince Alibaba in order to gain a billion dollar contract. The prince's father died lately, since the prince was filial, Jacky told Tsang that he should impress the prince by showing himself a filial son too. Unfortunately, Tsang had not seen his father for 10 years. Along with his wife, Tsang lied to his dad and made him show up in his banquet for the prince. However, Hung intended to rock the boat and seize the contract from Tsang. As expected, the banquet was totally ruined, however, Tsang not only won the contract, but also regained precious love from his family...
