New York. Twenty-five years since the last battle between Little Italy's Vittore legacy and the Chinatown Xin-Lu family. A battle where the former Signore Vittore had taken possession of the Xin-Lu sacred sword as a sign of his victory. After a quarter of a century of silence, someone has stolen the Xin-Lu sword and is killing again. Sandro's innocent sister is the first victim to be brutally murdered by the assassin. As he finally takes the decision to quit the mafia business, he is given his last order: to kill all Xin-Lu family members until the sword has been retrieved. His urge for justice and compassion forces him into betrayal against his own as he attempts to save the life of Lei, a delicate, innocent Xin-Lu girl.
