One man's search for his soul leads him on the ultimate journey. In his most spectacular adventure to date, acclaimed action superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme directs and stars in this exotic odyssey that takes him from the slums of New York to the mysterious Lost City of Tibet. Van Damme portrays a 1920s street criminal whose run from the police thrusts him into a forbidding realm of gun smugglers, pirates and an ancient, underworld martial arts competition. The legendary contest, known as the Ghan-gheng, pits the world's deadliest fighters against each other in a furious winner-take all battle. Forced to compete, Van Damme faces the ultimate test of manhood where one wrong move could cost him not only the competition, but his life.
