Filmed in Cape Town, this action drama is based on the writings of martial arts legend Bruce Lee and is set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco's Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century.

The series follows Ah Sahm, a martial arts prodigy who emigrates from China to San Francisco under mysterious circumstances.

After proving his worth as a fighter, Ah Sahm becomes a hatchet man for the Hope Wei, one of Chinatown's most powerful tongs (Chinese organised crime family).

Befriended by Wang Chao, a fixer and profiteer in Chinatown, Ah Sahm is taken under the wing of Young Jun, the hard-partying son of the Hop Wei's leader, Father Jun, who is facing an imminent opium war with a rival tong.

As he is indoctrinated in the rules of Chinatown gangs, Ah Sahm wins the confidence of a canny brothel madam, Ah Toy, revealing to her the true intentions of his journey to America.

Over the course of the season, Ah Sahm crosses boundaries inside and outside Chinatown, bringing him into contact with tong rivals Mai Ling, a beautiful and ruthless Chinese woman who has achieved a position of power in one of the tongs; and Li Yong, a tong lieutenant and Gung Fu master.
