This low-budget Asian-set adventure concerns a reformed smuggler (Vince Edwards of TV's Ben Casey) who finds his missing wife (Carol Ohmart) in Hong Kong. Ohmart has fallen in with a bad crowd and is involved with narcotics and stolen government bonds, requiring Edwards to extricate her from her woes. Director John Cromwell's star had clearly fallen since Of Human Bondage, as he was now forced to work with the likes of Filipino writer-producer Eddie Romero, best known for such dubious entries as The Mad Doctor of Blood Island. Romero regular Vic Diaz co-stars.
