Bruce Li stars as Bruce Lee in this action-packed martial arts film about the Kung Fu master's arrival to the United States and his adversity with the very different kung-fu society in America. He teaches Wing Chun kung-fu when he gets here, and soon realizes the unwelcome manner in which the kung-fu society treats him, berating his outspoken traits. Soon, his skills are challenged by an appointed pack of body-bashers, but Bruce with his expert skills deal with these bullies properly much to the dismay of their boss. This leads to an official hit on Bruce Lee--he is to be killed. Throughout his attempt to avoid death, Bruce realizes the big difference between his Wing Chun style and American street fighting--the two don't mix well at all. This leads him to his deadly new style of fighting called Jee Kune Do, meaning "way of the intercepting fist."
