| The story of Sammo Hung growing up in the Chinese Opera.
This is NOT a Sammo Hung action movie. See it anyways. This is the story of a Chinese opera troop and their harsh master (played by Sammo). The troop in question is the one that produced such greats as Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Yuen Biao. There is very little action in this movie, it is a drama. Sammo plays a VERY hard teacher, but he conveys a level of love for his pupils that makes his harsh treatment of them seem very difficult on him. This is Sammo's best drama. It is a coming of age tale, a biography, and a very moving film.
