The character Ah-Guan played by Mark Lee, is a non-typical drug dealer as usually depicted by Asian movies. Here, Mark plays a ruffian who is fashionable (at least he tries to be), flashy and a playboy. The first act of the film deals with how Mark tries to kill a girl, Lily(Candy Ice) by crashing his car into a rock, and how that had in turn had led to making a devil out of the girl.

And among these seemingly unrelated characters, their paths cross and somehow bad luck seems to transcend the characters that have all been “touched by evil”. Director Chai Yee Wei used Guan as a Singaporean (South East Asian) representation of a “modern devil” - often uncouth, yet funny and charming in his own way.
