From the Queen to the Chief Executive takes place shortly before the 1997 handover to China (hence the title), where a young woman (Ai Ching) has developed a pen-pal relationship with a convict (David Lee), and enlists the help of a sympathetic senator (Tang Su Wing) to help out the cause of getting him paroled. The film does a surprisingly excellent job in presenting the travails of a group of prisoners who were incarcerated as minors and detained at "Her Majesty's discretion," meaning that they have no set sentence for their crimes.
