Revenge of the Green Dragons follows two immigrant brothers Sonny and Steven who survive the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang "The Green Dragons".

After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is.
