Three childhood Kung Fu prodigies have grown into washed-up, middle-aged men – now one kick away from pulling their hamstrings. But when their master is murdered, they must juggle their dead-end jobs, dad duties, and overcome old grudges to avenge his death.

Mentored early on by master action director Corey Yuen, Bao Tran was instilled with an approach to action that draws primarily on story and character. Screen Anarchy has praised his short film work for its “believable characters, driven by a compelling narrative and brought to sumptuous life.” His editing credits include CHO LON, one of Southeast Asia’s highest-budgeted blockbusters, and JACKPOT, a heartfelt comedy that was selected as Vietnam’s official 2016 Oscars entry.

Produced by Michael Velasquez, Al’n Duong, Yuji Okumoto and Daniel Gildark.
