Ip Man: The Awakening

In this action-packed origin story of the legendary martial arts master, Ip Man fights for survival against a powerful gang.


After journeying from his home town for a new life in Hong Kong, a young Master Ip finds a city full of possibilities, but also where danger lurks around every corner. Determined to fight for justice, he intervenes in a kidnapping attempt, unintentionally igniting a turf war with a ruthless human trafficking ring.
