The war is over and a young World War II veteran returns to China with his army buddies.

The soldier soon finds that the American and British troops are receiving the heroes' welcome, while the Chinese who fought alongside them are neglected.

This intolerable state of affairs comes to a head when some thuggish US Navy members begin assaulting Jet and some of his friends.

Naturally, the strong minded Jet decides to defend himself and Chinese people in general and takes on the US soldiers one by one.
