A brother and sister escape from Japanese-occupied Shanghai to Japanese-occupied Taiwan, to stay with their grandfather who runs a Kung-Fu school there. However, the master of a Japanese Kung- Fu school in Taiwan has designs on bringing all other schools on the island under his domination, and part of his plan involves the murder of the siblings' grandfather. Undaunted, the brother and sister reestablish their grandfather's school, leading to a final confrontation with the Japanese Kung Fu master. Jackie Chan plays a young thief who at first does not want to learn Kung-Fu, but finally realizes that he can no longer stand by and let the Japanese trample the rights of the Chinese people. He proves extremely adept at the martial arts, and carries the fight to its final conclusion.

The original UK cinema release suffered extensive cuts, including to the use of nunchaku and fighting staff, plus numerous edits to groin kicks, punches and an ear clap.
Although the VHS releases required lesser cuts (BBFC only required the removal of footage featuring the use of nunchaku), distributors extensively edited both of them, removing almost three minutes of footage. All cuts were waived for the 2002 Eastern Heroes DVD release, though it was missing around six minutes of dialogue footage. See more
