The master told me, He Anxia,

to fight my fellow monks.

(GRUNTING)

NARRATOR:
Dad came of age in hard times.

The temple couldn't feed all its monks.

A fight would decide who could stay.

(ALL LAUGHING)

(ALL EXCLAIMING)

(BOTH GRUNTING)

(LAUGHING)

(ALL LAUGHING)

(GROANS)

(LAUGHS)

Master, I won!

NARRATOR:
Dad thought he'd won

the right to stay.

Wrong!

You won.

(LAUGHS)

You have talent.

Pack up.

You can fend for yourself.

Huh?

(ALL LAUGHING)

If you don't leave,

you'll never discover the road home.

It's another world out there.

You'll meet saints and sinners.

Be polite and work hard.

Practice your kung fu.

Don't let trouble scare you.

I won't.

Remember this.

Some will do anything to succeed.

But a hero stays true to himself.

Got it.

(LAUGHS)

Here, for you!

What for?

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

MAN:
Pig's head meat!

Have a taste!

Pig's head meat!

Have a taste!

(STOMACH GROWLING)

MAN:
One more, please.

CHEF:
Here you go.

For you.

(COINS RATTLE)

Hey, stop!

Are you talking to me?

I want that chicken.

Huh?

You should've asked.

I'd have got you one.

This one's spoken for.

Give it to me.

No.

Lend it, then.

No.

Hey!

You little thief!

You little thief!

Stop running!

Stop right there!

(CAR HORN HONKING)

(BICYCLE BELL RINGING)

Stop!

I'll get you.

(GRUNTS)

(SCREAMING)

Help!

I blame myself.

Why didn't I just give it to you?

Thank you for saving me.

HE ANXIA:
You're welcome!

- What's your surname?

- Don't have one.

The abbot named me "He Anxia."

My fault for stealing. We're even.

Why'd you become a monk?

Ask my folks.

Why dump a baby at a temple?

(COUGHS)

That abbot,

he saved my life!

Your folks must've been in trouble.

HE ANXIA:
Hmm?

I don't hate them.

They're the only parents I have.

But I'd like to know my birthday.

Everyone else has one!

Then today's your birthday.

First night out and eating like a king.

Isn't that like a birthday?

Uncle, thanks for the chicken!

Where will you sleep?

(CHUCKLES) Wherever I can!

I don't even know your name.

I'm Mr. Tsui.

Oh.

Want enough to eat every day?

Sure!

Do you have any debts?

(LAUGHS) Never even had any money!

Any unkept promises?

I promised to feed myself.

Not quite there yet.

Are you really an orphan?

Want me to call you "Dad"?

Dad!

Call me "boss."

DAO NING PHARMACY

TSUI:
This way.

Come.

- What is this place?

- A pharmacy.

The shop in front, home in back.

It's my inheritance.

You're an herbalist?

I am a doctor.

Of Western medicine.

And a surgeon.

My wife.

(KNOCKING ON DOOR)

Coming, coming.

You're back.

Who saw you home?

Daorong.

So my brother went to the opera, too.

You didn't want to go.

You didn't want me to go.

How was it?

Great.

Where's that chicken? I'm starving.

Oh, sorry.

I...

YUZHEN:
Forgot?

I ate it.

Who is this?

TSUI:
Ah.

A monk who left the temple.

I brought him home.

You could've asked me first.

It just happened.

Anyway, I'm so busy.

I could use a helper.

As you wish.

(GIGGLES)

How many of these can you eat?

(SNICKERS)

Okay.

Slow down. There's congee, too.

Here.

Thanks!

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

MAN:
Get up.

TSUI:
Anxia.

HE ANXIA:
Coming.

Cut it out.

I wasn't curing the blind.

Just giving her an eyelid fold.

(ALL LAUGHING)

Am I pretty?

Very.

Beauty really is skin deep.

Jerk.

MAN:
Dr. Tsui. We're here.

- (CRYING)

- Don't cry.

Just a quick snip.

Don't cry.

Good boy.

(CONTINUES CRYING)

Anxia, distract him.
