Ein chinesischer Gefangener wird bevor er überhaupt verurteilt ist, enthauptet. Am Ende des Films zeigt der Henker den Zuschauern den abgetrennten Kopf des Gefangenen.


Der Film ist einer der ersten Filme, die sich mit dem Thema des Boxeraufstands beschäftigten. Für seine Realisierung wurde ein Yellowface-Schauspieler eingesetzt.
