A rivalry between two career criminals leads to a chase across two continents in this action thriller. Jing (Chung Lai) is a beautiful but deadly Chinese hit woman who, after being abandoned as a child, was adopted by the Tong, the Chinese organized crime syndicate to whom she has sworn lifelong allegiance. A dispute between Jing and criminal overlord Chang (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) leads Chang to swear vengeance by killing off the members of Jing's Tong faction. With nowhere to hide at home, Jing escapes to the United States posing as an Asian mail-order bride, but when Chang learns she's fled to America, he hires Dan (Michael Madsen), a ruthless bounty hunter whose need for a pay day outweighs his scruples. The Ghost also stars Brad Dourif, Richard Hatch, and Louis Herthum.
