A master of monkey-style kung fu is framed and blackmailed by an evil dude. His sister becomes an indentured servant and his hands are crippled in payment for his supposed crimes. Years later, he's a street performer with a trained monkey. He befriends a petty thief named "Monkey" ... who acts like a monkey. They run afoul of crooked tax collectors, and he trains Monkey in monkey-style kung fu. Naturally, the man behind the tax collectors is the man who framed him. The film kind of drags in the middle, but starts and finishes with bravura comedic kung fu sequences. Well worth a watch for Shaw Brothers fans.
