Mr. Wu is kidnapped in Beijing by Zhang Hua and three accomplices, all disguised as cops. In the ensuing 20 hours, the Chinese detectives led by Chief Xing quickly form a task force and sweep the city. Time is of the essence though as Mr. Wu is ordered to be killed at 9pm regardless of whether the money is collected or not. The police eventually apprehend Hua alone and a dangerous mental showdown develops between police interrogators and Hua. As the deadline rapidly approaches, the detectives and captors collide in a dramatic battle.
