The movie is set in French-occupied Vietnam in 1922, where peasant rebellions against the French colonialists have erupted throughout the country. In response, the French have created units of Vietnamese secret agents to track down and eliminate the rebels. One of the agents is Le Van Cuong who begins to struggle and question his allegiance. When a high ranking French official is assassinated Cuong’s job is to find and kill the Vietnamese resistance leader. He meets Vo Thanh Thuy, the resistance leader’s daughter who is captured and imprisoned. Coung informs her of a plot against the resistance organization and helps her escape. He then becomes a fugitive too. In the meantime he falls in love with Thuy and eventually finds a cause worth fighting for.
