The story begins with two government agents — Matthew Johnson and Melvin Johnson — being captured by the Dragon Lady Stella Stevens. Cleopatra Jones then travels to Hong Kong to rescue the agents. Jones pairs up with Tanny (Ni Tien) and ends up in the Dragon Lady’s casino, which in actuality, is the headquarters for her underground drug empire. Jones and Tanny use their combat skills to battle the Dragon Lady’s henchmen and rescues the agents.
Max Julien, author of the source story for, and a co-producer of, the film's predecessor, Cleopatra Jones, refused to participate in the production, and instead got token credit for the story and script having been "based on characters created by" him.
