In Hong Kong, a sparrow is a pickpocket. Kei, the best among them, and his friends Sak, Mac and Bo are leading a quiet life of petty thefts. One day, the four friends meet Lei, a pretty young woman. Each of them falls for charming Lei who is held prisoner by rich businessman Fu. The pickpockets will set up several ‘tricks’ to free the young woman from Mr. Fu’s hold. “the film portrays a more subtle and moving element: Hong Kong city. This city keeps on changing. In Hong Kong the east meets the west, the old merges with the new” . Johnnie To
