Dong Weihong returns to Singapore from the United States with his 9-year-old son after many years. He catches up with his old-time army buddies, Chen Hanyuan , Lai Guoqiang and Huang Zhenfa to reminisce the past. Although they shared a secret past, they have now taken different paths in their life. Weihong, who is jobless, helps out in Zhenfa's car dealing business, while Hanyuan is a successful lawyer. On the contrary, Guoqiang earns a living by becoming a professional "scapegoat" for criminals. Before too long, the past catches up and the old feelings of betrayal start to brew among them.?

The four friends committed arson and were sentenced to jail and caning many years ago. But Hanyuan was given a heavier sentence: He was given an extra stroke of caning. That was because he was the one who instigated his friends to commit arson, effectively making him the true leader of the crime. However, nobody else would have known of that fact, unless one of his friends betrayed him to the police. Deeply traumatized, he vowed to find out which of his friends betrayed him. To find out the real culprit, Hanyuan stops at nothing, causing harm to those around him...

A love triangle began between Hanyuan, Sessy, Weihong and Qing Yi. Qing Yi, being a childhood friend of Weihong, was in love with him for a long time, but yet Weihong doesn't reciprocate. Weihong's return threatened the relationship between the married couple Hanyuan and Sessy, because Sessy still has feelings for Weihong. His mind slowly being deranged, Hanyuan is becoming suspicious of Sessy and Weihong, and he even grew to believe that it was Weihong who betrayed him many years ago.
