Yet every cloud has a silver lining, asbeautiful violinist, MeiYing, bewitches him. Yet this only draws the hate of Chen the bully, who floors Dre in seconds with his kung fu. Now if Dre is to stand up for what is his, he will have to learn the ways to beat Chen at his own game, as he finds the most unlikely master in maintenance man Mr. han. Yet also discovers that conquering an assailant comes not from petty feelings such as anger and vengeance, but calm and turning their own force against their intention…
