Dance teacher Ling-Ling receives a letter from her childhood friend Mei-Hua, who, after being forced into prostitution by local gangsters, was murdered in Japan. The letter was her last call for help, asking Ling-Ling to rescue her sister, who is controlled by the gangsters. Ling-Ling arrives in Tokyo only to be hunted down by the gangsters. After losing her right eye in the process, she becomes hell-bent on revenge.
One of the top Taiwanese female revenge films, Woman Revenger, directed by OUYANG Chun, showcases the deep-rooted problems of gambling, violence, drugs and sexual exploitation. The setting of a powerless woman battling patriarchy epitomizes the Taiwanese people’s collective unconsciousness under coercion. This unrelenting woman out for revenge was an early role for actress YANG Hui-Shan, who would later portray milder and more sophisticated characters that garnered her numerous accolades, most notably in two acclaimed literary adaptations Jade Love (1984) and Kuei-Mei, a Woman (1985).
