The story of martial arts legend Huo Yuanjia (Jet Li) who became the most famous fighter in China at the turn of the 20th Century. Huo faced personal tragedy but ultimately fought his way out of darkness and into history, defining the true spirit of martial arts. His self-discovery, and the choices he made, inspired his nation. His evolving, graceful Mizong (Missing) Fist method of fighting brought Huo success, and he formed the progressive Jingwu Sports Federation. Taking note, duplicitous members of the Foreign Chamber of Commerce engineered a Shanghai tournament pitting Huo against four fighters, each representing the major foreign powers in China. Huo committed to the bout and faced off against, respectively, a British boxer, a Spanish swordsman, a Belgian soldier, and a Japanese martial artist. What happened that day in 1910 has never been, and will never be, forgotten in China.
