When the Manchu dynasty employs the Master of the Flying Guillotine (Kam Kong) in hopes of quelling the resistance stirring within than Han people (their dynasty had recently been overtaken) the Master accepts, oblivious to the challenges that could impede him. Before long, a fighting tournament is announced, and the participants include the One Armed Boxer, who was responsible for killing two of the Master's disciples. The Master is certain he can down his newfound opponent by means of the Flying Guillotine (which entails hurling through the air at such a velocity that the victim is decapitated on contact), but the One Armed Boxer proves a challenging fighter himself. The film also features Jimmy Wang Yu and Lung Kun Yee.
