    A pair of impoverished conmen, siblings Yipao (Yuen Biao) and Taipao (Leung Kar-yan), finally meet their match when they are outwitted by their latest potential victim, a skilled martial arts master (played by Shaw Brothers legend Lau Kar-wing). Impressed by his skills and keen to learn the secret of his talents, they pester him to accept them as his students.
