After Mandrill is enlisted to entrap a powerful casino owner, he discovers that this man is also the one responsible for his parents’ brutal deaths. Yet upon meeting the casino owner’s beautiful daughter Dominique, everything begins to unravel for Mandrill whose life-long search for vengeance may soon fall apart.

As an adult, he is transformed into a relentless bounty hunter, code-named "Mandrill," with the sole aim of finding the murderer and avenging his parents. Mandrill’s only weakness has always been women, so he asks his uncle, a "Don Juan" expert, to instruct him in the arts of seduction. When Mandrill is hired to capture a powerful Mafioso casino owner, he soon discovers that this is the man who he has searched for all these years. But upon meeting Dominique, the beautiful daughter of the casino owner, begins an impossible romance, which can be the only obstacle to his revenge.
