Johnny Wang directed this softcore Category III exploitation drama starring Pauline Chan as Hung, an illegal immigrant from China who is forced to work as a prostitute to survive on the mean streets of Hong Kong. Hung's Chinese boyfriend Sam (Alex Fong) is on his way to see her when he is offered a lucrative position on the colony, but he is being tricked into participating in a jewelry store heist and ends up running for his life after being poisoned when the robbery is botched. Sam eventually makes contact with Hung and is mortified to discover that she is a hooker, but gets over his anxiety when the two must work together to elude Billy (Billy Chow), the evil criminal mastermind who wants them both dead. Rena Murakami shows up as the friendly Ann, whose aid to Sam and Hung proves quite dangerous to her own health, and Sophia Crawford is around as a would-be extortionist who fights Billy while totally nude. William Ho co-stars.
