Synopsis

Comedy. Augustin is a polite, slightly awkward Frenchman who makes a living as a film extra, although he yearns to be a martial arts expert. When he is advised by an elderly Asian man to go to the land of the warrior monks, Augustin decides that China is too far to visit and instead heads for the Chinatown district of Paris, where he befriends René, the owner of the shop where he obtains a job, and Ling, a female Chinese acupuncturist.
