- n 1936, China made its very first mark in the Olympic Games by enlisting a representative of 69 members and 11 martial arts performers to participate in the Berlin Olympic Games. The martial art performance, though not a competitive event, stunned audience and created a kung-fu frenzy in Europe. Yet little do we know the person who made this all happen. A self-proclaimed descendant of the Tai Chi master, the wisecracking Fung possesses remarkable martial art skill but never puts it to good use, until he meets Ling, who happens to be a record-breaking runner. In order to win over her heart, Fung determines to enroll at the Olympic team. He must fight his way up from multitudinous martial art experts from different clans with uncanny skill. His quest for victory eventually leads him to discover there is more to life than kung-fu. Thus begins a journey about honor, loyalty, love, and friendship.
