James Sheldon is a popular A-Lister who for many years had scores of films under his belt, but his arrogance and indifference to the outside world leaves his career stumbling down the drain. What’s worse, is his only chance of reviving his career is to make a movie regarding one of his childhood heroes in the past, a legendary action star who influenced James to get into acting. Plans fall into turmoil when the rights of the superhero are taken by a major movie studio, who are terrorists bent on using the industry as a mind control weapon to enslave audiences and create an army of their own.
When James is nearly killed trying to stop the terrorists, Lacy Wilson, a young adult woman mastered in martial arts with a black belt, reluctantly agrees to train him despite his arrogance. What James doesn’t know is that he doesn't know Kung Fu and begins to change his perceptions on the world and his chance of saving his career.
