Not bearing the fruits of his labor to be wasted, Sui Gong (captain of the drug trade police force) uses a new technology and implanted Xie Gangshan's memory into a death row criminal that looks exactly like him. "Xie Gangshan" was thus revived, and returned to the police force like nothing happened to him. After an incident whereby he accidentally shot a violent criminal, memories belonging to the death row criminal slowly returned to him... The identity of the criminal turns out to be none other than the son of Mu Kun, the leader of the drug organization. Dealing with his conflicting identity and memories, Xie Gangshan thus begin to investigate the truth of his father's death. He uses the mentality and thought process of a perverted murderer to approach this case, while dealing with his own personality change. At the same time, mysterious caricature expert Shen Liufei appears by his side.

However as he gradually gets familiar with the nature of human being, his faith toward "kindness" is reignited. Jing Gangshan swore to become a good policeman, and a good human being.
