Ninjas attack and mortally wound Lin Sun's adoptive father and Kung Fu Master Kee. With his dying breath, Master Kee gives Lin some magic tiger jewellery made from jade, and asks him to recruit two former students, Abe Brown and Robert Diamond, in order to stop the assassins. The trail leads to a ninja school/opium den owned by Sui Ti Kama. The three friends, "the Sons of the Tiger", stop Sui Ti Kama, but he is just the pawn of a larger organization known as "the Silent Ones".
