Newark Police Officer Remo Williams is framed for the murder of a heroin dealer and sentenced to death. An organization called CURE, whose existence is known only to the President and is designed with a cell structure, conducts an elaborate use that involves faking his death. He is drafted into CURE and instructed on how to become the ultimate assassin.
The culmination of his training involves instruction in the martial arts by an elderly Korean named Chuin. Williams is then pitted against a group of mob assassins that CURE's contacts have called MAXWELL. The group performs jobs for a prominent New York Mafia family, and has become powerful enough to turn against it.
Williams is sent to infiltrate and destroy MAXWELL by seducing the daughter of Fenton, who appears to be the group's middle-management type. Williams violently kills several thugs associated with the group as they begin to become suspicious.
