SynopsisEdit

Nick (Robin Padilla) is an undercover police officer who is in a mission that gone hay-wired when his cover was blown. In his attempt for survival, he stumbled upon a restaurant owned by a Chinese businessman where he met Tin Tin (Jolina Magdangal), a Chinese waitress. To remain inconspicuous from the bad cops and the syndicate he is pursuing, Nick kept a low profile and later accepted a small task from a Chinese businessman, Mr. Li (Roldan Aquino), to search for the latter's missing daughter, Mei Ling (also Jolina Magdangal).

Nick later discovers that Mei Ling is hiding by the name Tin Tin to escape a marriage her father has arranged with the son of another Chinese businessman Mr. Wong (Vic Diaz), who turns out to be the head of the syndicate Nick is pursuing in his earlier mission.
