When the FBI learns of an international counterfeiting operation being run through a Hong Kong newspaper, they send one of their leading agents, Cindy, undercover as a reporter in order to investigate. Upon arriving in Hong Kong, Cindy quickly becomes a headline herself after being photographed by a rival tabloid saving a child from a burning building. It doesn't take long for the criminals to realize what is happening and soon they are after Cindy and her good friend Judy. To make matters worse, Judy's father is the lead prosecutor trying to convict the head of the counterfeiting ring and the criminals will stop at nothing to remove him from the case. With the help of a few new friends, Cindy soon finds herself facing off against a wave of henchmen and hitmen all hellbent on stopping her from exposing the truth.

LADY REPORTER (aka Blonde Fury) was Cynthia Rothrock's first official leading role, as well as one of her last Hong Kong productions before switching to American-made films. Directed by actor and stunt coordinator Mang Hoi (Yes, Madam!) and featuring fight choreography by Corey Yuen (Righting Wrongs), LADY REPORTER delivers a barrage of head-spinning fight scenes including a climatic pole fight between Rothrock and fellow American martial artist Jeffrey Falcon (Six-String Samurai). Featuring strong supporting performances by Roy Chiao (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), Melvin Wong (Ghost Nursing), and actor/director Ronny Yu (Freddy vs. Jason), Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present this landmark in Cynthia Rothrock's filmography for the first time on Blu-ray in North America, newly restored from studio-provided masters.
