China, Shanghai. A Japanese top make-up artist and hairstylist Naoki Mizushima (Masahiro Motoki) suddenly knocked over by a bashed-up taxi, recklessly driven by a female-driver Linshi (Vicki Zhao). Mizushima is surprisingly safe. He accepts her passionate proposal and gets into her cab. Not understanding a word of Chinese, he thinks she is being kind and offering him a free guided tour of Shanghai. In fact, Linshi is thinking that "All foreigners are suckers", and that she can make a fast buck from her unexpected fare. So begins their "misguided" tour of Shanghai... Meanwhile, Mizushima's colleagues are in a turmoil by his sudden disappearance. His manager and long time partner Miho (Naomi Nishida) and slightly doubious advertising agent Yamaoka (Naoto Takenaka), plus the interpreter Shoshin (Sam Lee) all set off into nighttime Shanghai in search of him.
