The show stars Ming Yeung, Wai-Ho Yuen, and Kara Wai, who play key roles in the plotline. The series revolves around the underworld crime organizations in Hong Kong and Macau, which are led by the powerful triad boss To Yik-tin (played by Ben Wong). To Yik-tin's businesses include smuggling, drug trafficking, and illegal gambling, among others. He is known for his cunning tactics and the influence he wields over the law-enforcing authorities.

Meanwhile, the veteran cop King (played by Chun Wong) has a personal grudge against To Yik-tin and is determined to bring him down at any cost.

Another key character is Cho Tin-nam (played by Joey Thye), a young woman who flees from Macau to Hong Kong after being accused of a crime she did not commit. She ends up in the care of Madam Chiu (played by Kara Wai), a kind-hearted but tough-as-nails landlady who provides shelter for those in need. Cho Tin-nam soon finds herself in the middle of To Yik-tin's turf war as various factions try to recruit her for their own purposes.

Adding to the mix are various other characters, such as the hitman Kwan Ka-hang (played by Philip Keung) and his protege Ching Ho-yin (played by Matthew Ho), who struggle with their sense of loyalty and morality as they are caught up in the gang war.

The Defected is notable for its realistic portrayals of the criminal underworld and police operations, as well as its high-octane action sequences. The show features numerous car chases, gun battles, and hand-to-hand combat scenes, which are choreographed and executed with great finesse. Moreover, the show's attention to detail when it comes to the inner workings of triad organizations is impressive, as it sheds light on the structures, rituals, and customs of these criminal groups.
