Following a spectacular opening number, a lip-synched rendition of Jane Russells sultry You Kill Me, the films hero, in voiceover, sets the tale in motion. He has come to Macao in search of Candy, an old friend, who he fears has been kidnapped by a shadowy criminal syndicate. He searches the city streets and back alleys, gambling dens and music halls, but Candys whereabouts continue to elude him, until a larger, more sinister plot comes into focus.
