Hong Kong action drama directed by Herman Yau and starring Anthony Wong Chau-Sang. Legendary martial arts master Ip Man (Chau-Sang) travels to Hong Kong several years after the resolution of the Second World War, a conflict which struck his home in China and his family hard. With almost nothing but the clothes on his back, Ip Man is taken in by a friend and lives above his restaurant. Before long many of his new acquaintances, from a local policeman to a waittress and the leader of the restaurant's labour union, come to Ip Man seeking training from the venerable master. Each of them wants his help for different reasons, some of which will draw Ip Man himself back into the use of his honed skills.
