Summary
In the world of extreme Ping-Pong, the competition is brutal and the stakes are deadly. Down-and-out former professional Ping-Pong phenom Randy Daytona gets sucked into this maelstrom when FBI Agent Rodriguez recruits him for a secret mission. Randy is determined to bounce back and recapture his former glory, all in an effort to smoke out his father's killer. The killer happens to be one of the FBI's Most Wanted, Feng. Two decades out of the game, Randy can't turn his life around and avenge his father's murder without a team of his own. He calls upon the spiritual guidance of blind Ping-Pong Master Wong, and the training expertise of Wong's very sexy niece Maggie, both of whom also have a dark history with Feng. The most unique Ping-Pong tournaments ever staged take place at Feng's mysterious jungle compound. There, Randy faces formidable players, such as his long-ago Olympics opponent, the still-vicious Karl Wolfschtagg
