You Shoot, I Shoot 買兇拍人
Hong Kong is an extremely crowded city. More often than not, overcrowded space is irritating and provokes conflicts and hatred among people. For a place full of confrontations, hostilities, and malicious agenda, the professional services of hitmen are in good demand.
BART, a cool-looking hitman, is well known in the industry. The majority of his clients are the local rich and famous, offering him lucrative remuneration. He and his wife live well in the city’s luxurious district. They invest in high risk yet high return investments like property and stocks. They are seen as typical middle-class.
Unfortunately, good times never last. Since the Asian financial crisis, Hong Kong’s economy has been going downhill. Property prices have dropped drastically to historical low. BART, who bought several residential units at the peak of the property market, has been hit hard. In addition, investment in IT stocks has cost him millions.
Nevertheless, BART’s wife LING is not concerned about her husband’s plight. BART tries to talk her into saving money, but she turns a deaf ear to his request. Instead, she urges him to hustle for more contracts to make up for the lost cash.
Like the middle class, the billionaires, too, are in financial troubles. When a person’s wealth shrinks from $5 billion to $5 million, he becomes far more restrained. Even if he is in bitter conflicts with others, he will no longer spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire hitmen to get them killed. The majority of BART’s regular are rich people as such.
The only group still having strong purchasing power consists of social queens or wives of wealthy socialites. They are arrogant and have a lot of enemies. To them, hiring a professional hitman is only slightly more expensive than buying a top of the line designer evening dress.
To solve his financial problems, BART reluctantly begins rendering services for the wealthy women.
可是好景不常，經歷過金融風暴後，使一向生活無憂的阿Bart夫妻突然陷入了經濟危機，頓時成了負資產人士。 可是，阿玲卻不願諒解丈夫的因難，一如既往般揮霍無道。 而阿Bart一直賴以維生的多個長期客戶，亦不會像昔日殷輒花上數十萬去買兇殺人，令阿Bart苦惱不已。 於是，阿Bart迫於無奈，只得為闊太服務，為她們殺人
