In the opening scene, a criminal gang led by Brusstar (Joe Spinell) enters a home with the intention of killing a man. A housewife, Christine (Nancy Kwan), survives the hit that kills her husband and young son. Shocked, she discovers that her upstanding citizen of a husband (played by Phil H. Fravel) was a drug dealer. She decides to take revenge on the criminal gang that has murdered her husband and son.
A "down on his luck" L.A. taxi driver and numbers runner, Jason Walk (Robert Forster) unwittingly becomes involved. He helps her in her quest to survive and take revenge on the people who murdered her family.
