The Quest

Synopsis: Chris embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery that spans the globe. Kidnapped and enslaved by gun smugglers, sold by pirates and thrust into the murky underworld of gambling and kickboxing, Chris' journey takes him to forbidding Muay Thai Island where deadly martial arts are taught, the colonial splendor of British East Asia, the dank back alleys of Bangkok, desolate deserts once trod by the warriors of Genghis Khan and finally, the ancient Lost City. There he must face the ultimate test of his manhood in the fabled Ghang-gheng, the ancient winner-take-all competition in which the deadliest fighters from around the world employ the most spectacular feats of martial arts skills ever displayed in order to win the prized Golden Dragon. But fighting prowess alone will not be enough for Chris to triumph over such daunting foes. He must reach deep inside and access all of the determination, strength of character and sense of selfless honor within in order to triumph over this final obstacle

Cup of coffee?

Thank you.

- From around here?

- Long time ago.

Things sure as hell

have changed, huh?

Well, things change.

Hey, why don't I just put a little taste

of whiskey in that coffee?

What do you say?

- That's nice.

- You just sit down over there.

Relax. You make yourself at home.

I'll bring you the coffee.

Thank you.

What can I do for you fellas?

You wanna do somethin' for me?

- You can open the cash register.

- All right.

- Y-You just take it easy.

- You should leave.

I heard an echo.

Did you hear an echo?


What the hell

you gonna do, old man?

Drool on me?


Where did you learn

to fight like that?

It was long ago.

- What the hell is this?

- You read, please.

I'm invited?

- Hey, Georgie!

- Yeah.

Get a load of this.

You know what to do.

Let's go, guys!

Let's go!

Hey, clown boy.

- Get off of my street.

- Wait a minute.

Hey, Dubois.

What are you,

sick in the head or somethin'?

Please. Grow up, go get yourself some

decent clothes and come work for me.

- I don't work for nobody.

- Tsk, tsk, tsk.

It's too bad, Dubois.

It's too bad.

You're a waste-of-talent nutcase,

you know that?

Suit yourself.

I got money to make.


Hey, here.

Please. Juggle.

Dubois, I want you and your kids

off the street.

I mean it, Dubois.

This is it.

Move it, kid.

Get down now

or we'll knock you flat.

Grab him!

- Some nut, huh?

- Hmph. Yeah.

Get your ass down here.

Dubois, get down.

You've crossed the line, Dubois.

- Hey, what are you doin'?

- Lookin' for a toilet.

There's no toilet there.

Get lost. Get lost.

Where'd he go?

- Did you get it?

- There was nothing there.

It's impossible.

Today's the day.

Nothin', Chief. Sorry.

Nothing? Nothing.

I don't believe it.

- Wow!

- Did I tell you or what? We're rich!


- Look at that!

- With this we buy respect.

If we want something,

we take it.

- Forever and ever.

- Forever and ever!

- Billy.

- Yes, Chief?

Get us some food-

some real food.


- Let's celebrate.

- Yeah!

- Good night.

- Good night.

I'm so full I could bust.

Red, you go to bed.

See you in the morning, kids.


Hand me the dough, clown,

or the kid's dead.

Easy, easy.

The kid had nothing to do with it.

Shut your mouth

and hand me the bag!

You heard him, Dubois.

Hand it over.

Count it.

Nobody steals from me.


Billy. Oh, Billy.

It's okay. It's okay.

He's gonna be fine.

The cops are gonna blame you, Chris.

Chris. Chris!

They're gonna kill you!

Get outta here! Go!

Red, you're in charge now.

No matter what happens, I'll come back.

I swear to God.

I'll come back.

This way! Down here!

Put 'em in the wagon.

All right, come with me.

Dubois! I'm gonna find you

and I'm gonna kill you!

Dubois! Dubois!

Check the exits and watch the docks!

He's here somewhere!

Move it!

I got the gutter! Dubois!

Check the cargo.

Look around those boxes.

- What was that?

- By the warehouse! Move out!

Under there.

Your mother's health isn't improving,

and her money's gone.

I rather doubt she'll be coming.

Now, Christopher, be a good boy

and stay right here.

I'll be back.

Don't move. Don't move!

What is this?

A stowaway.

You work for us.

- Put him in chains.

- Wait.

Come on.

Back to work.

I come to say good-bye.

It's a shame,

but even good things...

come to an end.

Yes. I'm sure...

the sharks will enjoy you.

Hit the boiler room.

- Grappling irons, now!

- Cast!

Fire at will!

Come on, boys.

The Turk's ours.

Harry, who the hell is that?

We're even.

Hey, you're losin'

your aim, Dobbsy.

What's your name, son?
