Cinema Simply Different

A young Chinese named Cheng Li (Bruce Lee), who has sworn off violence, is sent by his mother to Thailand, since he has no work. Having arrived there, he works with one of his cousins in an ice factory. When two workers and Chengs cousin disappear, the other workers and their families start to worry. Cheng Li promises his relatives to investigate and find the missing people. During his investigation, he encounters his superior, the Big Boss, and is forced to rethink is pacifism to protect himself and his family.
The first of the four (finished) martial-arts movies with Bruce Lee is focused on the ingenious fighting choreographies, yet shows at the same time the differences between the poor working class and the rich factory owners. The literal class struggle is here being decided by the skill of Lees fists.
