Travis (Adam Boys) draws moderately successful cartoons that have mainly one goal: offend everyone who comes into contact with them. When he makes one cartoon about mob boss Leonard Fong (Kasey Ryne Mazak), he might have pissed off the wrong person: Fong kidnaps Travis and removes his drawing hand as punishment. But surprisingly that is not the last time his hand gets Travis into trouble. When shortly afterwards the hand turns up on his doorstep with a mind of its own and a will for revenge, things really spiral out of control.
Bloody Knuckles wants to argue about freedom of speech, but unfortunately does so from the worst possible perspective: that of an entitled white guy who is saddened that he can’t insult everybody at the same time.
