Directed by
Eric Karson

Scott James (Chuck Norris) is a retired martial arts expert whose life has been plagued by two differing kinds of flashbacks.

The first form of flashback takes him back to to his childhood memories of rigorous martial arts training he and a friend had under the leadership of a sharp master.

The second flashbacks he has is of a mission Scott partook in that ended in him being subjected to seeing his best friend murdered in front of him.

Now he has been drawn into an vicious crime ring known as The Octagon who have employed him to locate the Headquarters of the world's most deadly ninja organisation.

However when he learns that it was the same outfit that killed his parents and girlfriend the whole affair takes on a more personal and vengeful aspect and as he gets closer to the truth, Scott learns more devastating facts about these men.
