Realizing that this issue is much larger than he first knew, Jimmy enlists the help of his friends Jagger Daniels (Fred Williamson) and Mister Keyes (Jim Kelly) to help him unravel the mystery of House's mysterious illness and Wendy's kidnapping.

After a number of fights, explosions and karate chops where the trio quickly disposes of thugs and crooked cops, they are able to one of the white supremacists captive. The man is in the room with three of Jagger's motorcycle riding female associates who know how to inflict pain.
