Journey into one of the most breathtaking and mystical places on Earth and experience the phenomenal skill of Kung Fu performed with deadly perfection by the celebrated monks of the Shaolin Temple, and for the first exclusive time by the female masters of the Yongtai Nunnery.

This captivating and beautifully shot film tells the story of China’s first Zen monastery, founded 1500 years ago upon the Holy Mountain Songshan, and of the Yongtai Nunnery, established by a defiant Chinese Princess who turned her back on the nobility of court and dared walk the path of Shaolin and learn the arts of Kung Fu.

Granting unprecedented access for the first time, the Yongtai Nunnery finally reveals the secrets of today's Kung Fu Nuns. Culminating in the ferocious fight sequence Lotus & Sword, which pits Nun against Monk to prove both men and women may stand equal as true warriors of Shaolin.
