About Overheard
At the Hong Kong Police Force Commercial Crime Bureau, an operation is under way against insider trading involving Feng Hua International, a listed company. A man nicknamed the Boss is behind it all, and identified as the chief suspect. The interception team at the Criminal Intelligence Bureau is sent in. Led by Inspector Johnny Leung (by Lau Ching-wan), the team has veteran cop Gene Yeung (by Louis Koo) and the young rookie Max Lam (by Daniel Wu). They infiltrate Feng Hua International to install interception devices and start to monitor the companys phone traffic.

The two decide to make the most of this opportunity and buy heavily on the companys shares with a huge sum of money borrowed from a loan shark. Johnny is furious when he learns this, but nothing can be done at this point to retrieve the money now locked up in the shares.

The share price of Feng Hua International has gone so high that trading is suspended. The three fail to retrieve the capital and are on the verge of turning against each other in face of the crisis.

The Chairman, Ringo Low, is planning to sell high and cash out his shares; the other Board Directors decide to assassinate him in order to secure their interests. They seek help from the Boss. Lows life is at stake. However the trio is well aware that if he lives, the share price will plunge and not only their money, but their lives and even their families will be compromised. The three are torn between money, their future and justice. Finally, Johnny comes up with a perfect plan: to kidnap Low......
