Nurse by day and vigilante by night, Coffy is always tough. Now, she’s got a real score to settle: avenge her eleven-year-old sister by punishing the dope pushers and drug kingpins responsible for poor LuBelle’s addiction. Coffy is a 1970s superhero. She goes undercover and survives being drugged and withstands Mafia abuse. And she doesn’t need a man to protect her from pimps, prostitutes, pushers or politicians.
