A policeman and two men who've just lost everything that counted in their lives decide to help one of their friends take revenge on his director who gave away his Hong-Kong business to the mob while he was resting in the U.S. With only a pair of guns and a few grenades, our heroes will kill several dozens bad guys. A la John Woo.
