Once Upon A Time In China and America


Synopsis
Wong Fei Hung (Jet Li), together with is fiancee (Rosamund Kwan) and devoted sidekick Seven (Xiong Xin Xin) find themselves in the wild west in search of new horizons. However, an early confrontation with Native American Indians renders Fei Hung unconscious and parted from his group. When he comes to, he finds he has lost his memory, but the one thing that still clear in his mind is his ability to fight with lightning speed. The warriors of he tribe are amazed by his abilities and offer him respect and friendship.

Unable to communicate, he manages through sign language to persuade them to help him find his true identity, leading to countless action packed encounters on his path to being reunited with his friends. Once back with them though, he finds there is quite a bit of hostility to the Chinese from a lot of the colonial Americans... to such a degree that the Chinese get framed for robbing a bank, and are sentenced to death.
