Tax collector Ning (Leslie Cheung) is injustly sent to jail. Fortunatly, the day of his execution, he escapes and meets a young girl (Joey Wong) who looks like the lady ghost he once loved.
This sequel is more spectacular and over-the-top than the first instalment. It has, however, lost its romantic atmosphere. The film was shot during the Tienanmen events, and the sense of humour is generally darker and more cynical.
