woman named Shannon is beaten and sexually assaulted in her home. After
identifying the rapist in a police line-up, she learns the DNA doesn't
match and he doesn't have a tattoo on his back (as she had earlier testified).
As a result, the accused man is released. Shannon is still convinced
that Kiu Chi Yeung was the rapist. But no one believes her. Despondent,
she jumps to her death from her condo balcony. Her mother Carmen begins
to think that somehow Shannon had been correct about Kiu's guilt and
she attempts to frame him. Carmen buys weapons and starts fight lessons.
As she gets closer to Kiu Chi Yeung, a relationship develops as they
start dating. Carmen soon finds herself in an unexpected and deadly
struggle for survival.
Malaysian beauty Angie Cheung plays Carmen effectively. She had starred
WEAPON the previous year. Miss Cheung has since found a home
in Hong Kong television. She is the star of the hit series Zŗi

Realm of Conscience] (2018-XX). Emily Kwan, the young woman who plays
the victim Shannon, is also a popular cult actress appearing in 60+

film was started by Taiwanese director Ao Hsin Chin who fell ill during
the first few weeks of shooting [he would pass away from lung adenocarcinoma
at age 66]. Mr Chin was replaced by industry workhorse Lee Tso Nam.
Although he established himself with old-school Martial Arts films (his
VS LAMA is generally considered one of the best ever made),
today Lee Tso Nam is better known for his erotic exploitation (KILLING
IN THE NUDE), frantic actioners (LUNATIC
FROG WOMEN), brain-warping fantasies (NEVER
KISS A NINJA), and rape-revenge flicks (WOMAN
AVENGER: RAPE VENGEANCE). After 40+ films, he is still active
today directing movies in Beijing under the name Li Zuonan.
