Hoping to cash in on the popularity of Charlie's Angels, Pao Hsueh-li spins this low budget girls with guns actioner. As the film opens, Hong Kong finds itself terrorized by a gang of gun-totting jewel thieves who then traffic their ill-gotten stones out of the colony using attractive young women as their couriers. Once they reach their destination of Japan, the women are promptly killed and disposed of. In response to this particularly brutal crime syndicate, the Hong Kong government, headed by Scotland Yard agent Eve (Evelyne Kraft of The Mighty Peking Man fame), recruit willing policewomen to infiltrate the gang by becoming their mules. Soon Eve and a quartet of beautiful but deadly women (Yen Nan-his, Shaw Yin-yin, Dana, and Chin Cheng-lan) are working out the gang's hideout, a disco run by a vicious knife-wielding madman.
