Wong, a wealthy Chinese banker, who lives in California, accidentally dies during a robbery by Dakota who attempts to rob hiM of a thousand dollars and four photos of some unknown women. A rich warlord, liveing in China, having entrusted, at the time, all of his capital to Mr. Wong, because it would supposedly lead to a great return in fruitful America, takes hostage the entire Wong family, threatening to kill them if  Wang Ho Chiang does not return with his invested money. So the young Wang Ho, a martial arts expert, leaves for California and finds a note written in Chinese by his uncle which gives him a clue to recovering the treasure, if you read the Chinese characters tattooed on the buttocks of Wang’s four mistresses it will equal a map to the treasure. Wang Ho then frees Dakota from jail and with ingenious gimmicks and several dangerous adventures, they manage to track down the four women, last of which is a Chinese girl, so they now now know where the treasure is hidden. Wong Ho returns home with a wooden statue, which his uncle had been holding for the warlord. The statue turns out to be a container of the securities of the War Lord who is now ten times richer. The family is freed Wang marries the young Lia-Kua. Dakota decides to stay in China and reap the benefits of being a hero.
