SUMMARY
When Jack's Chinese mother dies of cancer in Beijing, Jack, a Chinese-American martial artist, enters a martial arts tournament in Japan, hoping to win and thereby gain the acceptance of his American biological father who had abandoned Jack and his mother before he was born and whom he has never met. Jack wins the tournament - but learns too late that the victory brings with it life-long servitude to a faction of the Japanese crime syndicate, the Yakuza. Jack flees Tokyo and the Yakuza 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 Jack's 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 Jack 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, Jack faces the dilemma of saving himself or helping rid the town of the insane Chief. Jack decides to help the town and stays. The Chief loses control of his tournament with the arrival of the Yakuza boss and martial artists from everywhere - all hell-bent on unseating Jack and becoming the Yakuza's Champion. The tournament becomes a fight-to-the-death, a fight with unexpected twists and turns - out of which Jack emerges as a true hero to the town and his father. Written By Val Verse  Less
