Young, up-and-coming martial artist, Bruce Lee (Philip Ng), challenges legendary kung fu master Wong Jack Man to a no-holds-barred fight in Northern California.

In 1960s Oakland, a hotbed of hippie counterculture and radical politics, young Bruce Lee (Philip Wan-Lung Ng) does some radical cultural work of his own, teaching a martial arts style he himself developed. The Bay Area Chinese community frowns on his sharing of ancient ways with non-Chinese, but Lee is a rebel. He’s intrigued when rugged white American Steve McKee (Billy Magnussen) walks into the class. McKee is a film actor and a risk-taker who proves an apt pupil, and Lee, fascinated by the American’s line of work, is equally eager to learn the way of motion pictures.

But Shaolin martial arts master Wong Jack Man (Xia Yu) has been sent from China to stop Lee’s heretical education initiative. And so things lead towards an epic showdown between Lee and Wong — with the very legacy of Chinese tradition at stake

George Nolfi directs the film and the first official images have been released.
