Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Lee Tso nam spins this cheapie action-comedy exploitation flick. Li Min-feng (Moon Lee) and her partner, Grace, are undercover cops working as nightclub hostesses hoping to apprehend a lunatic who is victimizing women of said profession. When Grace learns a secret she shouldn't have, the two become embroiled in a vicious underworld struggle for power. Brother Bee is a fantastically ambitious junior gangster who scrapes his way to the top by killing his superiors -- including his own father. This weapon of choice is a crack Japanese hitwoman (Yukari Oshima) who accomplished each mission with grim professionalism. When Bee realizes his ambitions and becomes his gang's top dog, he learns that the Japanese yakuza has put a hit out on him for an arms deal that went bad. Meanwhile Grace gets murdered when she tries to arrest the gangster. Vowing revenge, Min-feng buys a small arsenal of weapons -- including a small rocket launcher -- and strikes out against the gang.
