The action sweeps non-stop through this martial arts film featuring Ti Lung as Teng Piao, a prisoner just released from jail and seeking revenge. Teng Piao was framed by a gangster known as the "Leopard" (he has a leopard tattoo on his chest, his only identifying feature). The trouble is, neither Teng Piao nor anyone else knows who the Leopard really is. At first, Teng Piao thinks that Tu Fu-chun (Liu Yung) is the guilty party, and the duo engage in a long series of fights, not necessarily with each other. Eventually, the real Leopard is tracked down -- and it turns out that Tu Fu-chun is after him as well.
