An unorthodox coach and a trainer work together to teach a competition team of kickboxers that winning is not just a sometime thing and that a team is not a team if you don't care about one another.

The US national team travels to South Korea to compete in an international martial arts competition. Once there, a brash young member of the American squad goes out seeking revenge against the Korean champ who killed his brother in a previous match. Another member of the American team has entered the competition while still recovering from a shoulder injury, and he becomes dangerously distracted when his five-year-old son falls seriously ill.
With this splintering of the squad's effort, a US win is in serious doubt. Will they recover in time to taste victory'
