In 1925 Christopher Dubois (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is an orphaned pickpocket who roams New York's streets searching for victims.  The money he steals does not simply provide for him alone, but a number of other orphans who live in the area.  While running from police one day he hides in a boat that sets sail; Dubois is then sold into slavery and transported to Thailand.

There he becomes an expert in Muay Thai fighting, defeating opponents from across the globe.  Can Christopher's fighting skills earn him his freedom, however?  And will the fighter ever return to New York?

The Quest was a commercial success, nearly doubling its $30 million budget.
