Movie synopsis
9 August 2009 | by eh_youSee all my reviews

At the remote and hidden Shaolinji temple, Miyoko, also known as Shaolin Grandma , has practiced martial arts fighting techniques there for many years. When she is badly defeated by Ippon-ashi, her young and attractive rival, Miyoko is thrown out of the temple. Loosing her identity, Miyoko and her two Shaolinji apprentice misfits drift to an urban town where they are forced to live as street performers in order to survive. This new and unusual, yet decent life which Miyoko has never experienced before, strangely attracts her. Before hitting bottom, Shaolin Grandma dances at the local adult clubs and nearly loses her ancient connection to the Shaolinji temple. Can she get back the temple she once ruled and defeat Ippon-ashi before her fighting spirit is lost? The ultimate final battle will test Shaolin Grandma like never before.
