Step into the extraordinary life of a Chinese immigrant who overcame the challenges to achieve the American dream.  This biography follows the path of a young boy who learns the value of hard work and perseverance through kungfu training.  He escapes the harshness of political oppression, bravely ventures out on his own, and embraces opportunity in a new land. The now highly recognized Grandmaster Pui Chan is one of the pioneers responsible for bringing traditional kung fu to America. Pui’s eldest daughter and successor Mimi Chan (Director) confronts a new set of challenges, trying to keep the traditional values alive in an increasingly modernized era.
