Alan Tang plays a triad style Chinese crime boss located in New York City. He and another Chinese gangster are in competition. Their mutual triad boss tries and fails to keep peace between the two. This leads to intrigue and mobster-type action. The police side with the rival and continually harrass Tang.

Eventually Tang is framed by his rival, tried and sent to jail. Tang's beautiful girlfriend is compromised by his rival which angers Tang. Eventually, some city officials decide the best way to control things in Chinatown is to let Tang out of jail to seek revenge. This he does in a very exciting action-filled way which you will enjoy watching.

Note: Alan Tang has a degree in Chinese history and periodically uses the theme of people trying to alter or change Chinese history in his movies. New York Chinatown is one such movie. There is an interesting scene where Tang challenges a history lecturer who is altering facts to his students on the lawn at a college. Tang corrects the speaker at gun point and all the students clap!
