    After his mother's death, Chan Kai-yuk feels so alone that he leaves Guangzhou for Hong Kong to look up the father who abandoned him and his mom. But Yuk's hopes are dashed on finding his dad has a new family and considers him a burden.

    Alone and homeless, Yuk is taken in by Auntie Fen, a middle-aged recluse who leads a solitary existence. At first, their different habits and personalities lead to numerous squabbles, intensified by Yuk's self-centeredness and Fen's odd temperament.

    As time goes on, Yuk learns Fen is in the early stages of Alzheimer's. The discovery unexpectedly serves as a catalyst for the young man's growth as a caring friend. For the first time in her life, Fen feels truly blessed. But it is a situation rife with irony due to the nature of her disease and the accelerating elusiveness of feelings and memories.

  Trailer :

    One day, a monster from outer space attacks Earth and even Superman can no longer be counted on. It seems Earth’s last hope lies in...a dork and a rice cooker?

    Grown up in a small fishing village, McDull has no black mask, no red underwear, not to mention superpower. McDull has such an ambition that with his great enthusiasm for science, he will one day become an inventor. Suddenly, a giant monster invades Earth and defeats the widely believed Earth hero - Superman. At this critical moment, people from all over the world are called for participation in an international robot competition to find the most powerful robot to fight the monster.

    With no much resource but some cheap home appliances, McDull converts a rice cooker into his world-saving robot: the Rizo. Unexpectedly, McDull’s low-tech invention enters the final competition. The news excites the whole village. Not only Mrs. Mak’s works day and night to meet the expense, but Principal and many others offer McDull with abundant support. Finally, McDull and Rizo set off for final contest. Rizo looks clumsy and its functions seem so ordinary. Nevertheless, as the competition turns fierce and ugly, Rizo’s unbelievable endurance makes it the final champion.

    Like this, McDull and Rizo suddenly become the hope of Earth. Whereas the monster could come again anytime, some scheme is going on among the heads of states...Will McDull and Rizo, the partners that are once ridiculed, be the world savior? Why does the monster attack Earth over and over again?

    When one can’t count on superheroes to save our planet from outerspace monsters, who do we turn to? That’s right! A pig head and a rice pot!

    Mcdull has no black masks or red underwear, and certainly not supernatural powers. He is just an ordinary boy growing up in a fishing village and dreaming of growing up to become an inventor.

    One day, an outerspace monster invades the Earth and makes mincemeat of the superhero sent to meet him. So world leaders call on all citizens to design a super robot, to defeat the outerspace monster and save the Earth.

    Mcdull, who is scant of resources but plenty resourceful, starts fiddling with his mom’s household appliances. From a humble rice cooker, he designs a low-tech high-power robot: Risopot, and makes it to the final of the World Robot Design Competition. The whole fishing village is jubilant. To produce Risopot, everybody chips in, including the principal of the village school. And Mrs. Mak, Mcdull’s mom and the village fishball maker, works triple hard to meet the expenses. Risopot looks dumb and his functions are a joke. But with extraordinary tenacity and lots of dumb luck, he emerges the winner.

    Now the responsibility of saving the Earth falls squarely on the shoulders of Mcdull and Risopot. The outerspace monster will be upon the Earth again any time soon. The world leaders are having summit meetings and seem to be up to something. The pig head and rice pot combo, still a laughing stock, can they really save our planet? And the outerspace monster, why does he time and again invade the Earth?

    While he was tailing a Jockey Club trader in his investigation, Principal Investigator William Luk of the ICAC witnessed the murder of the trader by a lone assassin. Inspector Lau Po Keung of the Crime Unit was assigned to the murder and got nowhere with Luk’s testimony as Luk refused to disclose anything pertaining to his own investigation. Another classic run-in between the Police and ICAC was in the making. When the Police investigation led to someone called Teacher, the biggest player who controls the illegal bookmaking on football betting in Hong Kong, Terry Lun, the Security Manager of the Jockey Club was murdered. While Lau was in hot pursuit of the assassin, the assassin escaped with the help of Lau’s sister, Ebby. The hired hit was ordered by Big Boss, the mastermind behind an international crime syndicate who manipulated football matches in Europe. His partner was Ha Chi Yin, one of the directors of the Jockey Club who was the shoo-in candidate as the next Chairman. Two disciplined forces embarked on the case with mutual distrust ended up with rapport and understanding to uproot the crime syndicate...

    Following the anti-corruption battle in the first film, lead investigator of the ICAC unit, William Luk Che Lim, must decide on his next move to handle the uncontrollable case, which makes him re-enter the dangerous area and face his war with certain organisations.
