Ye Huiyi 30 years old, single A receptionist at a backpacker inn I had… knocked off after the night shift When I was about to take a shower, I noticed a pinhole camera
in the bathroom So I confronted the landlord Why did you bang away at the door? What is this? It’s a camera. So? You’re sick! I’m calling the police He admitted to having
installed the pinhole camera So I… I just wanted to get out of there quickly I ran back to my room to start packing… before calling the police But I never expected… Why? Got spooked by a small camera? What are you trying to do? -What do you want?
-What are you trying to do? Where do you think you’re going? You must have missed me That’s why you showed up, right? You kicked me! Hands off! -Didn’t you miss me? Sure! I’ll give you what you want Let’s not waste any time To stop him, I… I grabbed a pair of scissors… and started stabbing him But… I didn’t do it on purpose He wanted to rape me,
so I stabbed him I… I didn’t do it on purpose An act of self-defence… Thirteen stabs This is for you With compliments from my client Thank you You’re the parasitic worm in my stomach.
You know that I’m hungry Don’t be disgusting.
I’m not a parasite in your stomach Then I shall say that you can read minds What are you working on? Me? I’m counting “cash” If only all these papers
were currency notes You’ve gone money-crazy Are things back to normal
between Weilong and his wife? The cheek of you to ask me Thanks to you, their marriage almost ended I know I feel bad about it too,
though I’m not to blame What’s more, I can’t do anything to help It’s OK. I settled things in your place What did you do? I made a phone call.
Thankfully my words carried weight Shiman believed what I said That’s a relief. The two slices of cake
are money well-spent But you said they were from your client My client had to pay for them, right? Why aren’t you taking the call? You take it Why? -Take the call Me? Take the call, hurry Go on Hello Hello Say something The person ended the call The caller is sick, right?
It’s not the first time Who’s the caller? No idea I received a similar phone call two days ago But the caller spoke That’s not too bad Do you know what the caller said? -What? The caller said, “I… “killed someone” That’s scary! Did you call the police? No. It could be a prank call Did you recognize the voice? It was a woman The voice sounded familiar Maybe it was a prank call? I don’t recognize the number.
But the caller rejected my return calls If it was someone you know, why would that person spook you that way? What was the agenda? Since you found the voice familiar, it means that person was an acquaintance But why did that person
shock you like that? Did you make any enemies recently? Did I offend any woman? There was only one Who? Xie Wan’an Get serious. This is no laughing matter.
You should be careful What should I be careful about?
She said she’d killed someone She didn’t say that
she was going to kill me That’s true She had your phone number,
but you didn’t have hers Could she be a stalker
who has a thing for you? I’d say your caller is stalking you No, thanks -You’d better be careful Nah! You’re back early What are you doing here? Huiyi didn’t even call to inform
that she wouldn’t be at work Boss couldn’t reach her,
so he asked me to help He even told me to give her a call More than a dozen calls went unanswered.
Wonder what she’s up to This is her phone number? Yes. Are you looking for her too? I killed someone Come again? Hello Speaking What? I did warn you I’d told you to move out But you wouldn’t listen to me He told me that it was you who
had installed the pinhole camera You moved out because you got caught It sounded reasonable enough,
so I decided to stay on You’d rather believe him instead? -I didn’t expect him to lie to me
-So my words didn’t carry any weight Or do I look more like a pervert? Sorry Since you doubted my integrity, why did you still initiate
small talk with me that morning? During your stay at the inn, I saw how kind you were towards Uncle Quan After reading the article about you, my view of you changed A competent lawyer who’s
kind towards an elderly man… may be a wolf in sheep’s clothing too But I knew you weren’t like that So I started having second thoughts
about the landlord I’d wanted to move out that very day A shame that… If only I had made a police report, and exposed his misdeeds back then Things wouldn’t have come to this There are no if onlys in life Do you know what
you’ve been charged with? I’ve been charged with murder Can you help me? Of course, so long as
you’d tell me the truth But I don’t get it You stabbed him in self-defence,
but why so many number of stabs? I was terrified I was afraid that he’d retaliate So I stabbed him repeatedly It didn’t occur to you that
you might kill him? I don’t know. I didn’t mean to kill him I didn’t want him dead.
I really don’t know All right Got it Take care What did you want to ask me that morning? It no longer matters Sir, the time’s up Tianliang, how have you been? I’ve not seen you for a while I’ll be cooking your favourite
braised pig’s trotters tomorrow evening If you can, come over for dinner, OK? Sis, since I made headline news,
I’ve become busier Tomorrow night is probably out for me May I seek your advice on some things? But I need to rush off to see a client What did you want to ask me that morning? Too late. It no longer matters Pa! Did you urinate over there again? No, I did not Do that again, and
you’ll have to wear diapers No! Wicked woman, are you wishing
an early grave for me? Sis I thought you were coming tomorrow? Tomorrow? OK, I’ll come tomorrow Stop playing a fool. Come in You’re so adorable, Sis Close the gate How dare you! Shameless You bring a new boyfriend home
when your husband is overseas Pa, he’s my younger brother As if I’d believe you I don’t have senile dementia Boyfriend… Stop playing a fool Where’s Deguang? Out at sea again? Yes. His job on the cruise
takes him away for more than a month Ma, why didn’t you call for me
when you wanted water? You… are very busy I didn’t want to trouble you You’re giving me more work now I… I’m useless It’s been hard on you Sorry, Ma. Don’t get me wrong My brother is here to see me, so… Auntie, how do you do? I’m like the walking dead I’m useless. I’m not doing fine Your sister takes care of us all by herself It’s not been easy for her We have been a burden to her
for more than 10 years We are alive but in this pathetic state Auntie, please don’t say that We will all grow old I know my own children They couldn’t care less about us But thankfully, we have Qing
to look after us It’s been hard on her Qing, it’s been hard on you Not at all Ma, it’s my duty to take care of you Have some water Didn’t I leave the bell here for you? Press the bell when you need my help Old woman, you asked for me? Old man, why is your face so dirty? It’s OK. I’ll wipe it clean for him I’ll do it Let’s go You look handsome now.
Go watch the TV show I’ve not given you a drink of water Don’t bother I’m here to see you Come tomorrow I’ll make braised pig’s trotters for you Whatever for? I feel bad for you,
having to care for the two elderly folks Forget about the pig’s trotters You’d be too busy to cook the dish No matter how busy I am,
I’m still able to cook meals Didn’t you have a domestic helper? I found out that she’d been
mistreating my mother-in-law So I terminated her services What’s wrong with you?
You’re making it hard for yourself How about sending both of them
to a nursing home? The nurses at the home
are professionally trained It’s expensive putting them up
at a nursing home I quit my job more than a decade ago
to look after my mother-in-law Since that time, I’ve not had any income Your brother-in-law is the sole breadwinner He doesn’t make much either He has siblings Get them to chip in their share Very tough. Each time
we brought up the nursing home, they’d say it was a waste of money They offered to take turns to
let my in-laws stay with them In the end, it was all lip service In the end, they don’t give of
their time or money? It’s always best to depend on oneself.
I can manage It’s precisely why they’ve
pushed everything to you I’m already doing it for years.
I am used to it Enough about me.
Let’s talk about you How are things? Me? I’m doing OK I’ve kind of made a name for myself I’ve taken on a few cases that pay Sis I’ll pay for their stay at a nursing home
when I make enough money Your kind thought is
already more than enough Let’s have a meal outside No. What if my parents-in-law
start asking for me? Let’s do this. I’ll cook noodles for you I’ll throw in an egg and a sausage.
You loved it when you were a kid Forget about cooking anything Don’t you feel tired enough? I’m not tired Let’s just order in What would you like? Wonton noodle? Wan’an, I’d like us to meet up Shall we have lunch together? Hi We meet again I didn’t expect to see you Looks like you’ve been doing well.
You must have got a promotion Nothing good happens
whenever I see you You pushed her down the stairs? Of course That witch bullied my sister She asked the judge
to mete out a heavier sentence I had to teach her a lesson I got back at her Yes. I owe you one You may hit me or rant at me, whatever makes you feel better Let’s just talk about the case at hand Cut to the chase I like your candid style Mr Zhang OK. Let’s get down to business With regard to my client Ye Huiyi, if the prosecution would reduce the charge
from murder to private defence, she’ll plead guilty It’s out of the question The charge was filed after a careful study
of police statements and evidence This concerns a person’s life I’m glad that you realize that
my client’s life is at stake I was referring to
the deceased and your client We don’t take lives lightly So we’re talking about two lives here Are you here to nitpick
my choice of words? I wouldn’t dare to I’m just hoping to lighten the mood here Since you’ve studied the case, you would have known about… how the deceased He Yaofa
had installed a pinhole camera… to film my client in the bathroom Even if he was guilty of that, it didn’t warrant the fatal multiple stabbings He wasn’t just guilty of voyeurism, but he also tried to rape my client My client killed him out of self-defence That would be your client’s side of the story Signs of struggle were found… at the crime scene and on my client’s body I’ve no issue with you
taking your client’s word for it You may defend her in court Let the judge do the rest So you’ll still charge my client with murder? That’s right No room for negotiation? I notice that the cases you take on… are either borne out of sympathy
or a desire to help the accused Nothing wrong with that But being emotionally swayed
will affect your judgement You said we should just
talk about the case at hand So why did you digress? I forgot to do something What is it? I forgot to say goodbye Childish I’m not being childish, but childlike What time do you knock off? That’s none of your business Let’s go for drinks or a meal together My treat You don’t seem to get it What is it? One, we’re not close to… have drinks or share a meal together Two, why are you giving me a treat? What is your motive? So that I’ll be in your debt? Wan’an Yes? I couldn’t reach you on the phone,
so I thought I’d wait here But I have a prior appointment Hey Where are we going for lunch? Sure Let’s go This has been a silent meal We’ll either be mistaken for
a couple married for years… or having a cold war now You overthink Is Ye Huiyi’s case the
first murder case you’re handling? I don’t wish to talk shop Same here! I was trying to get
a conversation going If we’ve nothing to talk about, a quiet meal is not a bad idea either Do you regret having this meal with me? I had no other choice just now You’re brutally honest Looks like Judge Wu is
trying to woo you back I don’t wish to talk about my love life Nothing about love life Nothing about work So what can we talk about? Each time we meet,
you’ll slam the door shut in my face My nose is becoming flat It’s time I went to a surgeon Time to get a nose job OK I owe you a thank you Thank you You knew I was using you as a cop-out But you played along with me Think nothing of it Just curious Why did you decide to become a DPP? Was it your childhood ambition? It is my childhood mission… to bring all crooks to justice Thank goodness I’ve turned over a new leaf I’ve started life afresh Or if you were to handle my case, it’d be over for me Were you a rotten egg before? I served an 8-year jail term Thanks for your honesty Actually, I’m very curious What made you decide
to turn your life around? You transformed from
a gangster to a lawyer You mean you’re keen to know my story? It’s a long story You may get bored listening to me If I start to feel bored,
I’ll let you know When I was young, my parents passed away My grandma raised me My older sister also helped raise me I have ADHD I was a very playful boy I got into all kinds of trouble You can imagine the trouble
I put my grandma and sis through After I was sentenced to prison, my sister visited me one day Tianliang Grandma couldn’t wait for you She’s gone Tell her not to leave us Tell Grandma not to leave us Tell Grandma not to leave us!
Tell her to wait for me Hey! Come! Let me out The biggest regret in my life… is not seeing my grandma for the last time I did not see her off on her final journey While I was doing time, I got into fights with fellow inmates So I couldn’t attend my grandma’s funeral I was also detained in
solitary confinement cell That got me thinking My grandma’s death should be
a wake-up call for this lost sheep If I still didn’t come to my senses, her death would have been in vain She wouldn’t be able to rest in peace I’m sorry I raked up your sad past If your grandma were to
see how you’ve come good, she’d be so comforted That’s what I think too That has also been the force
pushing me to keep going, to do better than before There are so many professions
to choose from. So why law? When I was in prison, during the visiting hours, I’d see fellow inmates
and their family members… looking lost and helpless… when they were seeking legal aid So… I decided… to help them Hi. It’s a small world Hi Alone? I am alone But I don’t wish to talk to anyone Sorry OK, sure. Enjoy your me time Long, we worked for nothing today Not true So long as you show our client
the video that we were here, we’ll still be paid our wages Shuying She’s pretty! Just like a model.
You know her? Start packing up What are you doing here? -Weilong Drink with me Drink? You’re already drunk We shouldn’t drink together Your wife will get upset Come, let me give you a lift home It’s OK. I’ve booked a ride Be careful Is this your ride? Come, mind your head Are you Mr Chan? Who is Mr Chan? Where are you going? -Bukit Timah
-Then this isn’t your car Let’s get out of the car Sorry -Sorry about it Hi Hi I booked this car Sorry It’s OK. I can give you a ride back Really? -Sure Shuying, is he your friend? Bye Bye What a shame. You lost the girl to that chap You’re full of nonsense Here we are. Let’s get out of the car Watch out Come Where are we? I want to go home This is my place. You’re drunk.
Spend the night at my place No… I want to go home -Let’s go -No… Let go of me
-Come home with me Let’s go -What are you doing? Weren’t you giving her a lift home? You have an ulterior motive! It’s none of your business We’re all adults We’re both consenting parties Besides, I didn’t force her
to come back with me Shuying… Shuying You wish to go back with him? No. I want to go home Heard that? She doesn’t want
to go back with you And where are you taking her? Aren’t you after the same thing too? I’m not like you. Buzz off! OK, fine How about a threesome? It’ll be more fun Scumbag! Stay away from Shuying! It’s dangerous for a girl
to get so drunk by herself Are you OK? You feel like puking? Don’t dirty my car Hold it in. We’re almost near your place Hang on I need a bag Hang on! OK… Hang on Here you go Use this bag Coming Shuying -She’s drunk -Slowly does it
-How did she get so drunk? Careful Come here. Careful Be careful -Where’s her room?
-It’s on the second floor Careful Careful. Slowly Seriously Shuying, are you OK? Wan’an I saw you just now You did? Where? Why didn’t you call out to me? You were with Tianliang I didn’t want to play gooseberry Tianliang and I were just
having lunch together Nothing’s going on between us Wan’an You have my blessings Be happy Shuying, you’re mistaken I’ll leave you to take care of her. Got to go OK Bye I don’t like to be alone I just hope to have someone
to care for me I just want to have someone
to be nice to me Hello Who are you? Why is my husband’s phone with you? Where is he? I’m Shuying’s tenant Weilong saw Shuying home,
and left his handphone behind Hi. Here’s your handphone Thank you Your wife just called You took the phone call? Tell me What’s your relationship with Shuying? Why are you always drinking with her? I wasn’t drinking just now Take a sniff if you don’t believe me See if I reek of alcohol Then why did you see her home? I was collecting debts outside a pub She so happened to
come out of the pub drunk So I thought I’d see her home It so happened? Singapore is tiny indeed.
You run into people all the time Ask Hua if you don’t believe me Then again, why was it your business
that she was drunk? You should have seen her She was totally wasted What’s more, a man was trying
to take advantage of her Thank goodness I stopped him in time A hero to a damsel’s rescue Or do you expect me
to leave her in the lurch? You’re always so considerate towards her Have you spared a thought for my feelings? Don’t do this to me Shuying is a good friend of mine If I were to leave her alone
and something bad happened to her, I wouldn’t be able to live with that All I did was to see her home There’s nothing going on between us Nothing’s going on? You always jump to her defence Nothing’s going on? I’ve said all there is to be said If you still doubt me, there’s nothing I can do If you wish to be with her, you can always tell me I’ll give you my blessings What are you talking about? What’s this about letting us be together? Hey Stop crying You don’t look pretty when you cry Don’t be silly Who am I? I’m not some millionaire or multimillionaire I’m just a debt collector People shun me when they see me Only you’d see me as treasure Shuying is a lawyer She has no lack of admirers What’s more, she likes Tianliang She likes Tianliang? Yes. She’s carried a torch for him
for a long time But Tianliang had lunch with her tenant That upset Shuying, so she turned to drinks You women tend to overthink things You let your thoughts run wild Does Tianliang have a thing for her? That I don’t know Both of them are single Why didn’t you encourage them
to get together? I’m a debt collector, not a matchmaker Both of them are lawyers.
They make a good match Stop crying. Cheer up I’m beat. Let me go take a shower Where’s your bag? I left it by the roadside and it got stolen How careless of you Your wallet, IC and… I’ve got my handphone.
My wallet and IC are with me too That bag was my birthday present to you I know. Why don’t you give me another bag? I promise I won’t misplace it again.
It won’t get stolen Go take a shower Thanks Wen Shuying What were you doing? You got yourself so wasted over a man Good morning You’re up Feeling better? Sorry about last night.
I got drunk and you had to help me Here’s a glass of warm milk It’ll make you feel better Thanks Tianliang and I are just friends Why did you suddenly bring that up? I don’t want you to get the wrong idea Wrong idea? You said a lot when
you were drunk last night Weilong and I were both there Weilong? He brought you back last night People who are drunk
tend to shoot their mouths off Just ignore what I said I’d say those were heartfelt words
uttered in a drunken stupor I feel it. You like Tianliang You’ve got to be joking I’ve known him for years We’re good friends cum buddies Did you say that Weilong saw me home? He had run into you You were drunk, so he saw you home You don’t remember any of it? I don’t But he’s a very good friend I envy you You have so many good friends, buddies
and chums who’d be there for you But bad things befell
my good friends and chums They were either sent to prison… or ended up getting beaten And to top it off,
Weilong’s wife is mistaken… Speaking of his wife, I think
I caused a misunderstanding What happened? He left his handphone behind when he left Then his wife phoned him And you took the phone call? Yeah This is bad Here you go. Use the bag Mummy’s lost! I can see how happy you are Mummy, drink up -Drink up Give her more -More? It’s my third cup. Not so much! Herbal tea is cooling and good for you Then you won’t lose your temper so easily You have so much to say. Drink it Daddy, you’re cheating She’s my wife and your mother.
Surely I should help her? OK Who’s that? Hello It’s you I came to apologize Please come in What do you have to apologize for? I got drunk yesterday Weilong happened to run into me,
so he gave me a lift home I know. He’s told me about it Yes. I told my wife everything last night You needn’t have popped by for this That’s a relief I don’t wish to cause any misunderstanding You didn’t start any misunderstanding Oh yes. I’m sorry I threw up
into your bag last night Here’s a new one You lied to me! No… I didn’t mean to lie to you You even asked me for a new bag She’s shown up on our doorstep I didn’t mean to lie to you You’re not here to explain things You want to flaunt that
you’re one up on me Dear, she is totally clueless I’m the clueless one! Both of you are ganging up
to play me for a fool -Shiman, you’ve got it wrong
-Say no more! I want a divorce Fine! Let’s get a divorce Subtitles: A Han, Mediacorp TV
