As for Louis Koo, who plays the lead, the actor stated, "A good movie will always be supported by the audience."
The film also co-stars Louis Cheung, Jessica Hsuan, Cherry Ngan, and Philip Keung. It tells the story of a robber who becomes a prime suspect of a new murder case, in which the only witness is a talking parrot.
