Mr. Ho, "King of Gambling," makes himself rich by gambling and is the leader of the Hong Kong Mahjong industry in the 1950s. He has three wives, two sons and one daughter. Though it appears that the three wives are living in harmony, they actually compete against each other for the family's wealth. Since the three wives learned a bit of Kung Fu, they use food, bowls and chopsticks as weapons to attack each other during dinner. Their fighting intensifies when Mr. Ho brings his love child, Ah Fai, back home. Mr. Ho likes him very much but the three wives and two sons want to kick him out. Mr. Ho knows he is getting old so he suggests that his three sons each manage a Mah Jong club for a period of time. The one with the best results will be his heir.
