By accident, he gets shot in the head, and the bullet fragments stimulate his brain cells, accelerating his brain evolution to the highest IQ level. With such a dramatic change, TAI-HEI becomes a brave and resourceful detective, consecutively solving mysterious cases. Meanwhile, he turns ruthless and is utterly unscrupulous in his dealings with others, saving his best friend and partner PAU PING-ON (Pierre Ngo), to whom he still shows some mercy. Realizing the situation could have been worse, his supervisor LOUIS assigns a female inspector called EVA KIM (Sire Ma) to spy on TAI-HEI.
