A vicious judo expert sets out to prove that Chinese are the "sick people of Asia." There's only one thing which will set things right: the powerful title kung-fu technique, taught by Shih Szu (The Lady Hermit) and learnt by Chuan Yuan (Imperial Swordsman)!
Routine but enjoyable martial arts story of revenge. A Chinese man's father is killed by occupying Japanese forces. The young man then trains (cue training sequences) and then avenges his father's murder (cue Chinese vs. Japanese sequences). It's nothing you haven't seen before, but it's well mounted if nothing spectacular.
