Peter Chan’s Cannes-selected martial arts mystery film aims to redefine the genre, starring the legendary Donnie Yen.

Liu Jin-xi (Yen) is a village craftsman whose quiet life is irrevocably shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters in the local general store. When Liu single-handedly saves the shopkeeper’s life, he comes under investigation by detective Xu Bai-jiu (Takeshi Kaneshiro). Convinced that Liu’s martial arts skills belies a hidden history of training by one of the region’s most vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero — and draws the attention of China’s criminal underworld in the process.

Radius TWC plans on bringing Peter Chan’s genre-blending project to limited theatrical run starting on November 30th. You can watch the U.S. theatrical trailer below:
