The path is unsafe. The place is unknown. The journey is unbelievable.

 

Jason Tripitikas is a young American teenager who is obsessed with martial arts films from the far East. He is a regular at a pawn store in Chinatown where he browses through used DVDs and other items that are related to the Chinese culture. On his way home after scoring some new films to add to his collection, a group of local thugs forces him to return with them to the pawn store so they can rob the old owner.

The owner gets shot and Jason runs away holding an ancient fighting staff and when he falls from the roof of the building he gets transported into another dimension that looks like the ancient China. He has to return this magical staff to its rightful owner in order to get back home and his help in doing so is by following the drunken immortal Lu Yan.
