Synopsis of Where Hope Is Born
After the events of the first film, Inspector Lee and Detective James Carter head to Hong Kong to enjoy their well-deserved vacation. But just as they land, a bomb explodes at the American embassy that kills two undercover agents, who were investigating the forgery of a valuable ring.
Hong Kong police believe the crime was committed by triad leader Ricky Tan, who was once Lee’s father’s partner and was one of those responsible for his death. Taking the crime personally, Lee decides to participate in the investigations along with Carter, who now feels completely out of place, as he has never been to Hong Kong before and is not used to local traditions.
