After being released from prison, Sweet Potato (LEE Hong-Chi) returns to his coastal hometown, earning his bread and butter by renting out sunshades. To find work in the city, he needs a “good citizen” certificate. Gang brother Maozi pulls him back to collect protection money, his mother urges him to repay her debts, and his ex-girlfriend is resentful towards him. Only old classmate Seven gives him a moment of respite. He cannot escape the muddy past or drop new anchors until he holds a gun, aiming directly at the “boss” he has never met, ready to dismantle everything in life.
