This is the story of two young men who joined the Hong Kong police force and after completing their training  found themselves confronting rioters and demonstrators on the streets of the colony at the time that Chairman Mao Tsetung was inflicting socialism at first and then communism on China by way of the so-called Red Guards who where a mix of students and peasants who were largely responsible for the purging and arrest of thousands of Doctors, Lawyers, Professional businessmen and the Bougeoisie, mostly peasant farmers. While the characters portrayed are products of my imagination and bear no resemblance to any living person, much of the storyline is based on facts of the Cultural Revolution as it effected Hong Kong from May 1967 thru February 1968, which I witnessed first hand.
