When our young hero's mother dies of cancer, he enters a martial arts tournament in Japan, hoping to win and thereby gain the acceptance of his American biological father who had abandoned him and his mother before he was born and whom he has never met. He wins the tournament - but learns too late that the victory brings with it life-long servitude to an international crime syndicate. Our hero escapes the syndicate's clutches and heads to the U.S. with his championship belt to find his father, but gets stranded in Centerville - a small, end-of-the-road desert town that is owned by a cannabis-growing syndicate and ruled by an insane Chief of Police. When the Chief learns of his celebrity status in the martial arts world from a mysterious young woman claiming to be a reporter from "Ultimate Fighter Magazine", the Chief sees an opportunity to reverse his town's dead-end existence and gives our hero an ultimatum: Fight in a staged tournament in Centerville or go to prison on trumped-up charges. When an escape from Centerville is made possible by a brave local, our hero faces the dilemma of saving himself or helping rid the town of the insane Chief. He decides to help the town and stays. The Chief loses control of his tournament with the arrival of the international crime syndicate's boss and martial artists from everywhere - all hell-bent on killing our hero and thereby becoming Champion. The tournament becomes a fight-to-the-death, a fight with unexpected twists and turns - culminating in our hero winning the respect of the town and his father. But with a price still on his head, our hero has to move on - and his real adventure begins. Written By Val Verse  Less
