Just as Guei, a bicycle messenger, makes his final payment for the silver mountain bike loaned by his company, he finds it stolen. After endless searching Guai discovers his bicycle is now in the hands of Jian, who bought the bicycle with stolen money. The bicycle represents an escape for both from the competitive pressures of their lives. For Guei, it means access to a job, an income, and survival. For Jian, it is the pathway to being "cool" and being in the in-group, much like what a flashy sports car represents to Western young men. Though Guei and Jian finally work out a deal, they find themselves involved in a series of unforgettable events.
