Three dedicated health-care workers try to save a hospital from itself in this satiric comedy. Sir Ho Kau Kei Hospital is an absurdly mismanaged medical facility in Hong Kong where most of the doctors have given up caring about their patients, and the few that still do are frustrated with the endless red tape of the hospital's management team. Three exceptions are doctors Joe (Ekin Cheng) and Jim (Jordan Chang) and nurse Yan (Cecilia Cheung) -- or at least two of them are exceptions, since Joe has quit to become a mechanic with a team of race car drivers. Jim, however, tries to convince Joe to return to the hospital, where he knows he's doing something worthwhile. Yan, meanwhile, was inspired to enter the medical profession when her life was saved by an emergency appendectomy performed at Sir Ho Kau Kei Hospital; Yan has decided she'll marry whoever it was who performed the surgery, but no one is sure if the doctor on call was Jim or Joe. Lat Sau Wui Cheun was created by the same production team responsible for the box-office triumph Gu Nam Gwa Nui, and was screened in competition at the 2001 Berlin Film Festival.
