Ku Ren and Shem Bien are retired comedians. On stage, they were complementary to each other in bringing joy and laugher to lots of audience. However a misunderstanding has broken off their friendship. The comedians are both invited to participate in a charity show organized by a television corporation to raise funds for the handicapped children. At the press conference, both Ku Ren and Shem Bien refuse to play against each other on stage. With the efforts of their offsprings, Ku Ren and Shem Bien finally reconcile. The comedians are at their best on fund raising night. Amidst the heart throbbing music and captivating dance, Shem Bien collapses of a heart attack and dies on stage. Ku Ren having just regained his companion, loses him again. (Joy Sales)
