Godfrey Ho Chi-keung directs this Taiwanese-produced girls-with-guns yarn set in the Philippines. Eileen (Maria Jo) and Amy (Yoko Miyamoto) are hired guns after the same gangland crime lord, Charles Wong (Lam Chung). The guy who ordered the hit is Charles' relative, Albert, whose counterfeiting scheme has garnered the attention of CIA agent Betty Lee (Sibelle Hu Hui-chung). Hoping to keep the hit of his uncle as quiet as possible, Albert hires each killer to take out the other. However, their self-annihilation is stopped by a kindly hooker with a heart of gold. As the two plots to strike revenge on Albert, Eileen learns that her brother is in cahoots with the counterfeiter.
