Profiteer To Chai-yan (Lau Hak-suen) framed Dickson Fan (Ng Cho-fan) for selling counterfeit medicine which led Fan to ten years of unjust imprisonment. Fan escapes prison to a rural farm where he meets teenager Frank Wong (Bruce Lee), who helps him escapade arrest from the police. Later on, Fan discovers that Frank is his biological son and he finds a job outside at the provincial capital in order to earn money and anonymously pay for Frank to study medicine outside of town. Frank, not knowing that Fan is his father, believes that Fan is donating money to him out of gratitude. After graduating, Frank works at To's medical company. To has always suspected Frank to be Fan's son. In order to force Fan to come out of hiding, To frames Frank the way that he framed Fan back then.
