Killer Ping (Chow Yun Fat) is guilt-ridden when his wife dies in his arms during a fierce massacre. He runs the Peace Hotel and promises peace to all guests but turns his back for requests of escape from fugitives.
The rule upholds unbroken for ten years--until one day a lady steps into the hotel and captures Ping's eye. Golden rule vapors as Ping surrenders his heart to the lady, not knowing that it is all a trap. A conspirator is stepping in for a war. (Mei Ah)
