He practiced excellent Kung-Fu and was equipped with a good sense of feel. Unexpectedly, he showed his marvellous skills of slam-dunk. Therefore, he was selected by Wang-Li who had wicked ideas and made his living in the streets. On the excuse of helping him search for his family, Wang-Li invited him to play basketball at the first university. However, he would like to make use of him to make money.

After joining the basketball team, Shi-Jie found that Li-Li whom he admired for a long time is the sister of Ting-Wei (by Bo-Lin Chen) the leader of basketball team. Shi Jie was desperate to draw her attention. Therefore, he attempted to compete with Xiao-Lan (By Baron Chen), who is Li-Li's idol, which made the basketball team lapse into an unstable atmosphere. During the process, the conflicts between each other had been sorted out after the counsel of Ting-Tei. Meanwhile, he helped Shi-Jie combine the foundation of Kung-Fu into the basketball skills, which brought his skills into full play and helped team go through the critical competitions.

At this time, the major competitor faced by Shi-Jie and his team members was the team led by Lee Tien, the previous fighting brother of Ting Wei. The team was constituted by a group of horrible men who were withstood to join any basketball games in the United States. They also bribed the referees, which made the basketball team of the first university become the living targets and face the situation of crushing defeat. When the situation was in danger, Wang-Li made great efforts to persuade four grand masters with excellent martial arts to take up a challenge at the last moment.

How did Shi-Jie reverse the situation and lead the team to create a miracle? Will he find his family? Who would be his lover at the end?

In the initial planning for filming, director Chu Yin-Ping wanted NBA player Yao Ming to make a cameo appearance in the film. However, he is unlikely to do so due to injuries.

During the pre-production period, the lead actress role has been previously offered to stars such as Korean Singer BoA. But due to her busy schedule she passed the role to Korean Actress Yoon Eun Hye. Due to schedule conflicts, the producers settled on casting Hong Kong singer and actress Charlene Choi.
