Kin-Fo is an extremely wealthy man who certainly does not lack material possessions. However, he is terribly bored and when news reaches him about his major investment abroad, a bank in the United States, going bankrupt, Kin-Fo decides to die. He signs up for a dollar 200, 000 life insurance covering all kinds of accidents, death in war, and even suicide; Wang and Kin-Fo's fiancée are to be the beneficiaries.
