Paul Murphy desperately wants to be a big shot but the pursuit of fortune often comes with a heavy price. For Paul, it was the life of his best friend and partner, Tommy, apparently murdered for encroaching on a local drug gang's turf.

He meets the enchanting Yim and, veering from his intended plan, starts to rebuild his life running a chain of bars.
