In his travels, Caine meets up with an old man who has several surprises for him. The first being the destruction of the Shaolin order, the second being that the man is the father of the Emperor's nephew whom he killed in China, and the third is that he seeks his revenge using the son Caine never knew he had sired as the instrument of his death. It will take all of Caine's skill and wisdom to find a solution to this deadly predicament.Written by

Brandon Lee plays the illegitimate son of David Carradine's character. Brandon's real-life father, Bruce Lee, auditioned for the lead role in the original TV series, "Kung Fu" (1972), but Carradine got the role instead. See more »
This appears to have been the first calculated step taken towards diminishing the legacy of the incredible Kung Fu TV series. Look at the writer's credits. The Shaolin order has been destroyed! (says you). How much more awful can you get? No more spring of wisdom and center of peace, while the carrier of the flame is wrapped up in family affairs with the man we don't give two farts about (the father of the nephew), and an illegitimate son intent to kill him. Caine was a role model for many that grew up with the TV show. It is such a pleasure to observe the regular folks interact with the thoughtful and humble one. (ok IMDb here's your 10th line)
