The last set of foster parents were strange, cynical and cunning villains. The boy, by now an accomplished martial artist, kills them and sets out in search of the answer to the riddle of his father’s death. In the course of his searches, he encounters his twin. At first they seem likely to fight one another, but they eventually join forces.
