14-year-old Jimmy practices kung-fu every day. For this year’s Lion Dance, he is determined to hold the head of the lion. But when his teacher, the Sifu, announces the new crew, his dream comes crashing down.

He must make do with the tail end, while a talented newcomer is given the coveted place. Jimmy does all he can to become number one and earn his place up front with the head. But this means he must first defeat a group of bullies, convince the Sifu of his qualities and, especially, start to believe in himself.

When Martin is invited to play football with the other kids on the street, nothing goes to plan!
