Ah Xing longs to join the ruthless and notorious Ax Gang, and dreams of becoming a big shot in the underworld. However, his fate was changed by an accident.
The Ax Gang is eager to level the only land that has not been included in the sphere of influence. Ah Xing saw this opportunity and prepared to take the opportunity to show his ability. However, he didn't expect that there were martial arts masters hidden in this field, led by the fat and bully landlady Fei Po and the cowardly husband, the second uncle. These seemingly ordinary people have extraordinary martial arts skills.
In the battles with the fat woman and the second uncle, Ah Xing failed again and again, but he gradually awakened his inner desire. He began to realize that martial arts is not just for evil, but a power that can change fate, protect family and justice. So, he decided to practice martial arts and become a real martial artist.
Through hard training and hard work, Ah Xing has gradually grown into a generation of martial arts legends. In the process of becoming a gangster master, he also gradually changed his nature, from a street gangster to a kind and just person.
