Shum Wai delivers this straight-ahead crime saga. The film opens with Feng (Ko Cheun-hsiang), the elderly boss of a crime family, being released from prison for good behavior and bad health. In the outside world, he quickly learns that his daughter has shacked up with a depraved thug named Sin (future comic superstar Stephen Chiau) from America and that she will soon be flying out to the States to join him. When his attempts at fatherly consulting fails, Feng sends his goons, Maddy (Shing Fui-on) and Tat (Ng Man-tat), after the boyfriend. In return, Sin has his men cripple Maddy. When Feng swipes Sin's shipment of drugs, the war between the two men escalates, setting the stage for tragedy.
