Kim, a 14 years old girl, witnesses the murder of her mother by her father Sun Quan, a member of the Hong Kong triads. She runs away, takes the first boat she can find and lands in Los Angeles. There, she's taken care of by Cynthia Archer, a social worker who brings Kim to her home. Soon, Sun Quan also arrives in L.A. where he's told by Mac Hoggins, a policeman who uses to help Sun Quan's organisation to sell off heroin in the U.S., that Kim is at Archer's.
