Summary
Jason is an American teenager who is obsessed with Hong Kong cinema and kung fu classics. He makes an extraordinary discovery in a Chinatown pawnshop, the legendary stick weapon of the Chinese sage and warrior, the Monkey King. With the lost relic in hand, Jason unexpectedly finds himself traveling back in time to ancient China. He meets the drunken kung fu master Lu Yan, an enigmatic and skillful Silent Monk; and the vengeance-bent Golden Sparrow. Jason is led on a quest to return the staff to its rightful owner, the Monkey King, who has been imprisoned in stone by the evil Jade Warlord for five hundred years. Along the way, while attempting to outmaneuver scores of killers, Jason learns about honor, loyalty, friendship and the true meaning of kung fu
