Ten years old Sarah was born in New York. Her parents, Calvin and Rose are immigrants from Hong Kong, who own a well to do grocery store in a tight knit business community.
After Calvin and Rose’s funeral, Fang, Sarah’s grandmother decides to have Sarah live in a temple to learn the cause and effect of life. Meanwhile, Fang takes over the grocery store in an attempt to continue the family business.
Sarah lives in the temple for ten years. She has learned the impermanence of life and martial arts. When she becomes a young woman, Sarah goes back to her grandmother and helps at the store.
Everything is going fine until one day two thugs enter the store and attempt to rob them, the resulting commotion triggers Sarah’s memory of her parents being slain. Sarah quietly sneaks around the store from behind the thugs. She performs martial arts moves on the thugs and knocks them unconscious.
Feeling good about helping people, Sarah adopts a costume to fight crimes at night. Soon, she is named, “Justice Angel”, like the young woman, “Xiaoying” in the ancient Chinese fable, who fought for justice.
