The Big Boss (1971)
Cheng is a Chinese man from Guangdong who has moved to Thailand, with the help of his uncle, to find a job working with his cousins in an ice factory. When a block of ice is accidentally broken, something that looks like a bag of white powder comes out. Later that night, Cheng’s two cousins who discovered the heroin are asked to stay to see the manager. They are told that there are better jobs for them. Apparently, the factory is a front for a drug smuggling ring led by the Big Boss, Hsiao Mi. The cousins are offered good positions. When they decline, they are swiftly eliminated.
Hsiao Mi attempts to cover up the murders, but Cheng and his surviving cousins become suspicious. Two more of his cousins, Hsu Chien and Ah Pei, go to Mi’s house to ask if he knows what happened to them. When they realize he is acting suspicious and start toward the police station, Mi also has them killed (but not before Hsu takes several of Mi’s men down with him).
Hsiao Mi then distracts Cheng by promoting him to foreman and providing him with alcohol and prostitutes (turning some of his cousins against him). However, out of affection, one of the prostitutes reveals the truth to Cheng, who then breaks into the factory at night and discovers his cousins’ corpses. Cheng’s snooping around is immediately discovered by a gang led by Hsiao Mi’s son, Hsiao Chiun.
