Summary
Sweet young Ai Nu is abducted and sold off to the popular Four Seasons brothel run by a lusty madam, who entrusts the newcomer with martial arts secrets like "Ghost Hands," which allows a fighter to plunge into an opponent's chest. Soon murder erupts within the brothel, and a policeman must race against time to prevent a vicious revenge plot from reaching its blood-spattered conclusion
