Overview - Momentary Lapse of Reason



Louis Cheung appears to be a cop who can easily betray his own dignity and accept bribes. While investigating a human trafficking case, he meets Tavia Yeung, a woman who has taken a vow of celibacy. Tavia and her friend, Lin Xia Wei, had been kidnapped when they were young, thus, they hate human traffickers. They equally hate corrupt public servants, with the exception of Louis's colleague, Matt Yeung, whose upright and honest character catches Tavia's eye and she even falls in love with him. Louis and Matt are initially polar opposites, but after Louis's acceptance of a bribe causes the death of a witness, it starts to touch his conscience. However, at the time, the police and the underworld each had their own unbreakable, unwritten laws. Matt is demoted amidst the power struggle of businessman Lau Kong and detective Timothy Cheng. It puts his relationship with Tavia to the test. Seeing all of this, Louis's heart aches, but all he can do is stay silently by Tavia's side and secretly hope that he can make up for his past mistakes...

The Fixer - Preview of Cases



Case #1 - Movie Newcomer's Drug Case
A new movie star, fresh off from winning an award, is having a drug party in his hotel room. It is not until his manager arrives at the scene that they realize the situation has gotten out of hand and a large group of reporters are waiting downstairs. Faced with an uncontrollable situation and needing to protect the newcomer's reputation, his manager decides to ask "The Fixers" for help. How can Chin Ka Lok and his team eliminate all the evidence and quietly bring the movie star away from the scene without the media knowing?




Case #2 - Commercial Fraud Fugitive
Reporter Yao Bin is wanted nationally for commercial fraud. Hiding inside the embassy of a small nation, he will be arrested by the Hong Kong police within 24 hours. Under these emergency circumstances, he seeks the help of "The Fixers", hoping that they can rescue him and help him escape from Hong Kong as soon as possible. After analysis from legal consultant Mandy Wong, the team decides to take this case. Unexpectedly, the case involves Chin Ka Lok's brother, OCTB sergeant Benjamin Yuen. Behind it is also a scandal involving corrupt Mainland officials.




Case #3 - Fake Milk Powder

It has caused great tension in society and led to incidents of babies being poisoned by the fake milk powder. It turns out that this is all linked to a rift between two triad leaders, Eddie Pang and Ken Law. While the police intervenes to tackle the crime, the leader of "The Fixers", Chin Ka Lok, is also forced to act...
