An ancient but still fleshy Chinese corpse is on auction in the United States. A young businessman (Sam Christopher Chow) purchases the corpse. The corpse is revealed toto be the body of his great-great-great-grandfather and he intends to give it a proper burial in Hong Kong. The corpse must become active through the enchanted commands of a Taoist priest to control the corpse’s movements, and to keep it from becoming an irrepressible vampire. To achieve this a good-natured Taoist priest (Lam Ching Ying) attaches a yellow talisman with red Chinese script to the forehead of the corpse, and this talisman must remain on the corpse’s forehead at all times if the priest is to maintain control of the cadaver. The young descendant and the Taoist priest decides that the best way to get the valued ancestor home is via a direct flight to Hong Kong on a private jet.
