Left jab, right hook, and a lethal double-cross erupt in the first movie of what would become a trilogy for Chang and actor Sheng Fu (aka Alexander Fu Sheng), whom he made a star. After his father is murdered, kung fu sets Sheng on the path to manhood but when he decides he wants to settle down and marry feisty Tien Niu, he must first face rival Danny Lee (later to star in John Woo’s The Killer) as well as a slew of familiar faces from the Shaw Bros. repertory company.
