Pro-Western espionage agents Gregg Morrison in the guise of a tourist (Walter Hill) and a hippie, Standford Jones (Chris Ware) follow Cindy (Janet Wood) through the streets of teeming, downtown Singapore. They are investigating her connection With Dave Dearborn (Tom Keena) a has been American newspaperman who operates a run down discotheque aboard a junk in Singapore harbor. Morris almost loses the girl when stopped by a street pimp (Mark LOUIS) whom he beats up.

Peter Fields (Brian Walden) a young New Zealander visits Dearborn and discovers him in bed with a gorgeous Chinese girl. Dave describes himself as a failure and suggests Peter return home before he too is ruined by the pleasures of the Orient.

Plume (Peter Gernert) a strange, heavy set American calls on Dearborn and representing himself as a wire service editor offers him a job doing a story on a Chinese businessman, Mr. Lim. Dave refuses- but when Plume lets it be known that Dave's former girlfriend, Mai Lee (Vickie Racimo) is living with Lim-Dave's curiosity is

aroused.

Peter insists on learning more about Plume's visit and Dave reveals that Lim is a gangster. Dave then sends Peter see Mai Lee. She insists that she never heard of Dearborn and sends Peter away He hurries to find Dave but is stopped by Jones who asks for a handout.

Cindy meets Dave at the "Adonis Bar" an infamous Bugis Street Transvestite bordello. She isn't aware that the lovely girls are really men. Dave is waiting for Peter who never appears.

Dave next looks for Pete at Jok's an Orchid Road Club run by Bonnie (Angelique Pettyjohn) who both dances and acts as a high priced Madam. "No," she says, "I haven't seen Peter tonight."

Peter's body is found in the harbor and the police think Dave murdered him. We learn of Dave's s odd past: He was connected with Jacques Dutan a notorious homosexual gangster in Saigon. Dave is sure that Plume had something to do with Peter's death. The police give him forty-eight hours to find the fat man.

Dave finds Plume in a bordello. The fat man escapes and Dave chases him to a public latrine. Jones and Morrison knock Dave out and let Plume escape. When Dave recovers the two men offer him $25,00Q.OO to help them find a detector from Red China. Morrison think Lint is offering the defector for sale to the highest bidder. (We also Iearn that Days met Dutan in Viet Nam.) Dave accepts their offer.

Dave recruits Bonnie and she seduces Lim while he searches Mai Lee's hotel room. He finds a business card with Dutan's alias, M. Gilbert. bays acting on a tip from Bonnie hurries to Lim's rubber plantation and learns of a meeting on a remote island the next morning. When be returns to his junk he finds Bonnie waiting. As they make love, a huge Malay breaks into the room and attempts to strangle Dave. He is sated by his pet Gibbon ape who distracts the killer long enough for Bonnie to kill him. Bonnie and Plume shoot it out. She is killed and Plume is severely wounded. Before dieing he tells Dave that, "Someone who loves you," is trying to kill you.

Dave takes Plume's body to the island and props it up. A gunfight occurs when two espionage agents fire at each other by accident after seeing Plume's corpse. Lim and Mai Lee arrive and scavenge the cash the agents brought with them to pay for the defector. Mai Lee then kills Lim. Dave beats her up, but their old love overpowers him and they fall into each others arms. An Eurasian giant enters and overpowers Dave.

He finds himself prisoner in an elegant mansion. Dutan is not dead after all. The Corsican confesses a strong attraction for Dave and decides not to kill him. He, instead, flees with the money. The giant Eurasian is about to attack Dave sexually when Morrison and Jones arrive on the scene.

Dave hunts down Dutan and finally shoots it out with him on Sago Lane (Singapore's famed Street of death.) Dave mortally wounds Dutan, but greed overpowers him. He returns for the money bag and Dutan gets off one last shot. Dave, near death, staggers off. Cindy calls to him.
