Summary: So-so soapie about streetwalkers

Carrie and Shing do their usual competent acting jobs, but the story is less than riveting.

Aging prostitute Lau Hing must deal with younger mainland girlsmoving in on her territory while trying to get her husbnad to quit gambling. Meanwhile, Fai is constantly bailing her reckless transvestite sister out of bad situations. They all band together when ganster Saur tries to take over Yuen Chow street. This movie played more like a checklist of plot devices than a real story, but there was just a little chemistry between Carrie Ng Ka Lai (Hung) and Lau Kam Ling (Fei).
