This film describes a police station in Dandong City, located on China's border with North Korea. It is much like any other small town Chinese police station, and the young policemen spend their days as representatives of the Chinese government, upholding the law, preserving the peace, and supervising the lives of the local residents. As they carry out their duties, they meet up with a motley group of characters.
