Hong Kong filmmaker Ko Sing-pui directed this minor gangster film starring Joey Wang as Wong Fung-yee, the daughter of a powerful elderly triad kingpin. Fung-yee is dating a policeman, Lui Kin-tat (Wilson Lam), who is forced to arrest her father when one of the gangster's underlings turns informant. When her father is convicted and sent to prison, Fung-yee inherits his empire and decides to close down all of the illegal operations within it, much to the displeasure of the organization, notably the ruthless Ho Sai-cheong (Lung Fong). Besieged from all sides and with her relationship on the rocks (Kin-tat is heading up the investigation of her businesses), Fung-yee is brutally raped by Sai-cheong, who uses a videotape of the assault and threats against her father to blackmail her into relinquishing control of the organization. Max Mok co-stars with John Ching, Ricky Yee, and Melvin Wong.
