In Infernal Affairs II, the story takes place ten years before the events of the first film, focusing on the origins and complex relationships between the characters.

The film begins with Chan Wing Yan, a young police academy graduate, being recruited as an undercover cop to infiltrate the powerful Triad organization led by Sam, known as the Ngai family. On the other hand, Lau Kin Ming, who comes from a prominent Triad family, joins the police force to help his father's business interests.

While Chan tries to establish his cover within the Triads, he faces constant danger and threats, struggling to gain the trust of Sam and his fellow gang members. Meanwhile, Lau's father, Lau Kin Chung, is a high-ranking officer in the police department and uses his position to aid the Triads. This creates a tension-filled dynamic between the two young protagonists, as they find themselves on opposite sides of the law but still connected through their shared experiences.

As Chan delves deeper into the Triad underworld, he becomes more entangled in their criminal activities, participating in drug trafficking and violent conflicts, all the while trying to maintain his undercover identity. Throughout the film, it becomes evident that Chan's mental stability deteriorates due to the constant pressure of his dual life.

Parallelly, Lau's strategic intelligence and ambition catch the attention of Superintendent Wong, who recognizes his potential and promotes him to work as his close aide. However, Wong has his own hidden agenda, involving intricate political manipulations and a desire for personal gain.

In the midst of this complex web of alliances, betrayals, and pursuit of power, both Chan and Lau find themselves pitted against a rival crime boss, Ngai Kwun, who poses a threat not only to the Triads but also to their own personal ambitions. This common enemy forces them to push their limits and question their loyalties, as they try to outsmart each other while keeping their true identities a secret.

Infernal Affairs II masterfully weaves together the elements of crime, suspense, and the internal struggles of its characters, providing a gripping prequel that sheds light on the origins of the intense cat-and-mouse game portrayed in the first film.
