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.
