Plot

When a triad patriarch and all his sons are assassinated in a gang takeover, it’s left to his surviving daughters and daughters-in-law to save the business and orchestrate revenge. The patriarch’s youngest daughter “Ching-ching” (Elizabeth Lee) has just returned newly married. Her husband, while superficially attentive and agreeable, is actually a traitor planted by the rival gang. As the men attend a Chinese Opera performance or visit a mistress, they are targeted in a series of well-planned assassinations. One daughter-in-law (Kara Hui) is both shrewd and suspicious, trailing the new family member and discovering his duplicity. But she is disconcerted by the impulsive vengeance seeking of another of the in-law widows, “Chieko,” a Japanese played by Michiko Nishiwaki. Sword in hand, Chieko slices her way into the headquarters of the rival triad. Ironically, up to that point she has only killed a receptionist and is unexpectedly gunned down. Hui is also discovered. After a fine chase sequence and martial arts confrontation, she too is gunned down. Unlike most comparable action films, she’s not dead – but ends up paralyzed with a tube up her nose, vainly attempting to signal to her grieving relatives with her eyes. With the failure of the martial artists, “Nan” (Tien Niu) takes over. Long involved with the ways of the triad, she understands the duplicity at its core. Accordingly, she makes peace with the enemy while planning for war. In this she is as ruthless as any in orchestrating a series of killings – including Ching-ching’s husband.
