Sid (Jaycee Chan – son of Jackie Chan) the rebellious son of a controlling and savage mafia boss in Hong Kong, has to flee to the beautiful mountains of Taiwan upon enraging his father’s violent adversary. Hiding out in the mountains, Sid encounters a group of Zen drummers whose mesmerizing art, rigorous physical training, and austere way of life pique this hostile urban young man’s interest and he requests to join the group. Sid’s independence from the mafia life and his father is profoundly challenged, however, when a twist of fate brings him back home to Hong Kong.

THE ARTS CLUB
For nearly a century the Arts Club of Washington has promoted and celebrated the visual, performing, and literary arts in the nation’s capital. Gatherings for members, exhibits and performances for the public, and a range of private events are held in the club’s historic I Street mansion, which was formerly the home of President James Monroe. Arts Club members come from a wide range of artistic disciplines and professional backgrounds, joined by their shared enjoyment and appreciation of the arts.
