A remake of Cheh Chang’s classic The Boxer from Shantung by director and writer Corey Yuen (Righting Wrongs, The Transporter) who gives it the Hong Kong 90's action cinema treatment.

A tale of criminal gangs, betrayal and greed, starring Takeshi Kaneshiro (Chungking Express, Fallen Angels) and Yuen Wah (Kung Fu Hustle) as two brothers, Wing Ching and Tai Cheung, who flee their impoverished homeland to seek their fortune in Shanghai.

The brothers, at first find more grinding penury when they are forced to work as lowly coolies, however Wing Ching soon becomes embroiled in the seedy world of big city triads and his once insignificant life becomes an arrogant lust for power.
