Synopsis and Plot Summary

The story is about an assassin named Mr. Long, narrating his life after a failed assassination attempt in Tokyo. He escapes the syndicate and together with LiLi and her son, they start a new life away from the old ways. However, his past still hunts them down.

Mr. Long (Chang Chen) is an incredibly skilled assassin. Equipped with only a six-inch sword, he can single-handedly eliminate a room full of enemies. His martial arts skills are comparable to that of Bruce Lee. However, after a failed assassination attempt in Japan, he acquires severe injuries and escapes to an abandoned house in a small town. There, a boy named JunJun (Bai Runyin) gives him clothes and water, and thereafter, helps Mr. Long settle in an old house. As Mr. Long recovers, he uses the simplest ingredients to create the best dishes. He shares them with the boy and not long after, everyone in town has heard of Mr. Long’s cooking skills. They speak highly of him and admire him so much that they help to fix his house, buy ingredients, and even give him a new cart to sell Taiwanese style beef noodles.

JunJun’s mom, LiLi (Eleven Yao Yi Ti), was a prostitute before she fell in love with a driver. She escaped the control of the syndicate and gave birth to JunJun. Unable to work for a living, she gets back to her old job and one of her customers injects her with drugs. If it wasn’t for Mr. Long, the beautiful mother and her responsible son would have lost their lives. Unknowingly, Mr. Long also starts to become attached to them.
