New York’s Chinatown. Lieutenant Liu is on the trail of Arthur, an unemployed laser scientist who is actually a nice guy, in spite of the fact that his last experiment backfired and blew his assistant’s head off. Arthur’s cousin, Joey, a small-time wheeler-dealer, introduces Arthur to a shady corporation which is interested in funding his research on laser weaponry. At the same time, Joey meets a beautiful young Taiwanese girl who has come to find the American dream, but must work in a massage parlor while she’s searching.
