As Anti-French rebellion spreads throughout 1920s-era Vietnam and colonialist sanctioned units of Vietnam agents attempt to track down and destroy the rogue cells, a French educated Vietnamese agent finds his loyalty put to the ultimate test in this martial arts action drama starring Johnny Nguyen. Le Van Cuong (Nguyen) was rooting out Vietnamese rebels from French occupied Vietnam when be began to resent the fact that he was spilling the blood of his fellow countrymen. When a high ranking French official is assassinated, Coung is assigned the task of finding and killing the notorious rebel leader responsible for the hit. Cuong's conscience is stirred, however, when he happens across Vo Thanh Thuy - the daughter of the elusive rebel leader. Though Cuong's superior wants to use Thuy as a pawn to get to their intended target, Thuy would rather commit suicide than betray her father. Touched by the Thuy's undying devotion to both her father and her country, Cuong vows to help the girl escape to safety even if it means sacrificing his own life in the process.
