Storyline

After spending 12 years in jail, Wu-shiung had found himself a homeless. Thinking of the days in prison, it really mad him so regret about those days in gangland. Anonymously, he earned his living at a metal plant. Later, he won over not only the friendship of his colleagues but also the peddler, Ali's love. One day, his colleagues had a quarrel followed by a fight with gang people. Ali was seriously injured at the incident. Wu-shiung dug into the gangster's haunt and captured the leader. However when the leader's daughter kneeled down for her father's life he forgave him, only because he came to realize vengeance is the source of vicious circle. Written by L.H.
