(mbc.net) LA police detective Stan Zedkov (Michael Rooker) fatally wounds a drug dealer. He does not know that the dead criminal was none other than Triad boss, Terence Wei's son (Kenneth Tsang). The ruthless crime boss elicits the help of the best assassin there is in mainland China, John Lee (Chow Yun-Fat). He lets Lee know that his own family's safety is at stake if the assassination does not go according to plan.

Yet Lee's conscience will not allow him to take the father's life in front of his son, placing his family in Shanghai in immediate peril. He tries to obtain a forged passport to make his way back to China and save his family using the help of Meg Coburn (Mira Sorvino), before the replacement killers take out detective Zedkov, his son, Lee and his family in Shanghai.
