ultra-rare Filipino film - obviously transferred from an old VHS tape

of gold are stolen from a mineral field on Hainan Island, off the coast
of Hong Kong. Investigator Chi (Karel Wong) arrives to help a Hong Kong
police captain (Elvis Tsui) in the case but they soon find themselves
powerless against the gangster syndicate. A young rogue detective (Yukari
