In order to be "The Last Dragon", a young martial arts student in New York trains to become a great fighter like Bruce Lee, but first he must face off against one mean, bad dude known as Sho'nuff, the Shogun of Harlem.
Leroy travels from the mean streets of Harlem to the star covered streets of Hollywood where his girlfriend, Laura, is filming her new show. After meeting up with his old friend Johnny, taking a tour of the town, and dealing with some small time thugs, Leroy finds that trouble seems to find him no matter which coast he is on. In Hollywood, that trouble goes by the name of Fo'Sho, a gang leader from Compton who aspires for the badder and radder things in life. Too bad for Fo'Sho, he did not plan on a martial arts master like Leroy standing between him and his plans to become the Shogun of Hollywood.
