The continuing saga of the life of one
of the most powerful men in China in the first half of the 20th Century.
By the late 1920's, Luk has established himself as the overlord of
Shanghai; a player in politics, business, and the huge underworld. But
his generosity begins to strain his finances.
Pondering his future, he decides to
make a strong commitment to the country, opting for high society over
getting high. But the 1937 attack by the Japanese on Shanghai throws
both Luk and his country into turmoil. Luk is forced to flee to Hong
Kong. He returns after the war, but finds the new Nationalist government
isn't very accommodating. As China begins its transition to Communist
rule, Luk sadly realizes he is heading towards oblivion.
