Devastated after losing his mother to the murderous whims of invading Japanese soldiers, a young kung-fu wiz kid vows to fight for the impoverished and defenseless masses in a rousing tale of adventure featuring the all-star cast of Dragon from Shaolin and starring martial arts prodigy Sik Siu Loong. The time is the turn of the 20th Century and when young Liao (Sik)'s mother is brutally murdered, the frightened orphan seeks solace in the company of a Peking Opera troupe. After honing his martial arts skills to perfection in the company of his new family, Liao assumes the role of a Robin Hood-type avenger dedicated to toppling the invading Japanese forces and selflessly giving to the poor.
