This screening follows the success of the first two editions which overviewed Hong Kong cinema with Jackie Chan’s classic POLICE STORY and contemporary comedy VULGARIA by Pang Ho-Cheung.

What happens when an autistic girl, with uncanny reflex and mimicking abilities, spends a lifetime watching martial art films? She becomes the baddest chick on the planet.

Though born autistic, Zen has the amazing ability to copy the martial art skills of her film heroes; Bruce Lee and Tony Jaa. These skills come in handy when the peaceful life Zen and her mother Zin have is shattered when Zin is diagnosed with cancer. Zen delves into her mother’s dark past to collect on family debts but finds they are in a fight for their lives when the entire Bangkok criminal underworld come bearing down on them.
