Storyline

A ruthless pack of thugs force mild-mannered, caught-in-the-middle-of-something-bigger Nami to murder her fiance's sister, decidedly ruining her pending marriage and landing the poor girl in the most brutal women's prison ever seen. Inside the hellblocks, she decides to stop being a victim at all costs, and ends up becoming stronger and even more vicious than the craziest inmates in the pen. She eventually escapes in a most unusual way, gets valuable fight training from a mysterious mountain man and returns to the streets in order to make the thugs who ruined her life pay. By this time, Nami prefers to go by the name of Sasori (translation: Scorpion). Written by Mitch Davis for Fantasia Film Festival

Silly Soap
31 March 2021 | by bemyfriend-40184See all my reviews

Sort of a silly soap. A combo of Ricky O, the Story of Ricky, and Cambodian romance. Some realistic action with beautiful fighting women. Some flying Fu, and maudlin romantics. Gets five stars.
