A notorious Los Angeles hitman is drawn into an assassination plot that turns out to be much more complex than it initially appeared in this period martial arts adventure starring Rhett Giles. In the 1930s, a skilled assassin named Scholar (Giles) and histrained team of killers took on the jobs that were too intimidating for the rest of the underworld. Approached by the beautiful Kay (Coco Su) to avenge the death of her parents, Scholar and his men set out to track down Kay's diabolical twin sister Sue (Su), who was said to have murdered her parents and horded the family fortune as her own. But the more Scholar learns about his target, the harder he falls for her. Ultimately, Scholar chooses to protect Sue from his own team of assassins, in the process discovering an explosive secret about both sisters. As the mystery builds to an explosive battle between the twins and the assassins hired to kill them, Scholar suddenly realizes that it was his own murderous deed that set this treacherous plot into motion, and that the only way out now is to fight to his dying breath.
