Yang Guoli is an ordinary district policeman of Beijing. He knows very well his patrol area and deals earnestly with the various tasks of his job, putting up long hours on duty and withstanding the occasional stress that this brings in his family life. One day a rabid dog bites a drunkard in his area and the Police Headquarters decide to exterminate all the domestic dogs in the city. The new task adds up an heavy load to the usual patrol routine and stress level rises to the breaking point.
