Movie Info

Filmmakers Martha Burr and Chen Mei-jun join forces to explore the American immigrant experience from the unique vantage point of five émigré monks from China's legendary Shaolin Temple. From constructing new temples to performing under the bright lights in Las Vegas, these Zen masters and kung-fu artists discuss precisely how they attempt to balance the ancient demands of their rich native culture with the often contradictory expectations thrust upon them by Western society.
