Lee Cheuk is released after serving a 15-year prison sentence. He tries to rebuild his life and follow the right path, but his past catches up with him. A triad boss tries to enroll him in his gang while a police detective closely tails him.
With this film, Patrick Lung Kong definitely became a key figure in Hong Kong cinema. His hero, firmly grounded in the reality of his time, and his social criticism made this film a classic that has influenced many directors, like John Woo and his A Better Tomorrow.
