Wing Chun is a heroic story, a tribute to the ordinary people. Holding an unyielding passion for the world of cinema, Dachun, a retired lighting designer, chose to work in a film archive. A dusty film archive brought him back to the unforgettable memories of filming Wing Chun, where his career in the film industry started... Wing Chun, Tai Chi, Baguazhang, Bajiquan, Praying Mantis Fist...some are fast and powerful, some are resilient and dexterous. In the thrilling martial arts world, matchups between top-notch masters are filled with excitement and strength. Likewise, in the film-making world, light and shadow are also like swords and fists, shaping the image of different heroes and bringing people’s dreams into reality. In the spotlight, Master YIP firmly executes the first moves of Wing Chun, Siu Nim Tau, with the resounding ancestral motto "Support the Weak, Support Benevolence" shining behind him. As the camera zooms out, the film crew outside the spotlight are also honoring their respect for kung fu with meticulous care and breathtaking bravery. Master YIP is a true hero. He hung up the sign board of Wing Chun Hall in the beginning and took it off in the end, just to break down barriers between different martial arts academies and spread his lifelong knowledge throughout the world. In the midst of a changing era, he sowed the seeds of Wing Chun, nurturing its growth into a towering tree with branches reaching far and wide. The ordinary people are also heroes. Just as those film-makers, and every individual in pursuit of their dreams, they are like the countless branches and leaves of this grand tree, each one is trying their best to stretch out to the light, to shoulder their bit of responsibility, and to contribute to the growth of the great tree of kung fu.
