KwayFay was once a homeless scavenger on Hong Kong's waterfronts. Now grown, she lives in a shack on the mountain slopes, and commutes daily to her job as a lowly office clerk. She survives by paying bribes if she has to, and keeping silent when abused. Her only ally is her grandmother's ghost.

There is a tense, pregnant feel to Hong Kong, for this is the time just before the handover, when the People's Republic of China will repossess the Crown Colony. Hongs and Triads - underworld organisation's that are above the law are concerned, since China's policy is to eliminate criminal cliques.

The head of the Triad learns of the impoverished 'no-family' girl who talks to ghosts, and wonders if she could hold the answer to the question of an uncertain future, except that superstition is also forbidden by the incoming regime. The girl might be the last chance for his Triad's survival - but believing in her might prove to be its destruction.
