Frank Lee doesn’t just practise martial arts: for his many students and fans, Frank Lee is martial arts—a high-kicking dynamo whose style of full contact fighting has hurtled him into the very stratosphere of the profession. Frank is happy to play the role he’s cultivated, but there is at least one person who would like to look beneath the superhero mask: his son, Corey. Frank’s status as a legendary street fighter and world-renowned coach have kept him at an emotional (and physical) distance from Corey; but now the younger Lee, in his forties and a father himself, would like to reconnect with his mighty dad.to do this, Corey must enter Frank’s world, a world where fighting rules.  Produced with Corkscrew Media and the National Film Board of Canada.
