Summary
A greasy Hong Kong fast-food joint serves as the focal point for two off-kilter love stories about two cops, both told from multiple perspectives and exploring the fragility of human connections. Detective 223, dumped by his girlfriend, buys a can of pineapple every day which he will eat in a year, if she hasn't changed her mind and returned to him. Meanwhile, he falls in love with a bewigged drug smuggler. Detective 663, also dumped, falls for nutty counter girl Faye. Possibly unhinged by her habit of constantly listening to an ear-shattering rendition of "California Dreamin'," Faye falls for him and begins sneaking into his apartment, rearranging the furniture, cleaning the place up and further weakening his already-shaky grasp on reality
