Manfred and Flora are degenerate gamblers who can gamble on anything 24 hours a day seven days a week. Though they have come across each other a few times at the casino, they have not left any lasting impression upon each other.
On that fateful day when both of them lost their jobs and abandoned by their lovers, they went to gamble at the casinos in Macau. Coincidentally, they both suffered heavy losses and were held hostage by the loan sharks. It was then they fell in love with each other. When they finally secure their freedom, they return to Hong Kong and live together.
While they started living together, their luck turns. They keep on winning until Flora is pregnant; they then decide to get married. However, before the wedding banquet is held, both of them cannot shake off their gambling addiction and lose their whole fortune. Their parents have to pay for their wedding finally.
With the birth of their daughter “Lucky”, Manfred and Flora consider quitting their gambling habits, but all their efforts were in vain. Instead they are debt ridden to such an extent they decide to end their lives. They buy a Mark Six ticket with their last ten dollars, and like a miracle, they win the first prize totalling over $100 million. However, they decide to split the money and have a divorce after all.
But who should have their daughter’s custody? After a long fight, they come to an agreement that both should quit gambling for a week and whoever breaks the agreement will lose his/her custody right. Private detectives are hired to watch over both of them. They do not realize how painful it is to quit gambling, even for just seven days. However, on the last day, something unimaginable happens…
