Dragon Chan is a Hong Kong cop who has spent many years of his life building up a reputation within a major Chinese crime organisation, working undercover to expose some its most ruthless associates. However, it soon becomes clear that the mob boss Xiong is on the warpath searching for spies that threaten to solidarity of his gang and Chan starts to get nervous when a number of other double agents are found brutally murdered. Sure enough, someone Chan thought he could trust reveals Chan's true identity to Xiong and the rest of the organisation and Chan finds himself desperately trying to protect his already unstable family life while also trying to escape certain death himself. He has the skills to defend himself for a few days, but when it's him versus a huge organisation with access to numerous weapons, his survival chances are starting to look limited.
