When his brother is murdered after a kickboxing match, rough-and-ready Jake vows revenge. Leaving Los Angeles far behind him, Jake heads for Manila as he follows a hunch that he hopes will lead him to those who killed his brother. Once there, a world of violence and deception envelops Jake, and he finds that avenging his brother's death will be a much more arduous task than he originally expected. Feet, fists and blood fly aplenty in the dramatic finale.
