Sid, the rebellious son of Kwan, a savage Hong Kong triad boss, escapes to Taiwan upon enraging his father's adversary, a powerful underground business leader. Hiding out in the mountains, Sid encounters a group of Zen drummers. Their mesmerizing art, rigorous training, and austere way of life pique the hostile urban young man's interest and he asks to join the group. Although Sid despises his father, he is turning out to be a younger version of him: wild and defiant. Immersion in the world of the Zen drummers gradually converts him into a focused young man. Sid's independence from the triad life and his father is profoundly challenged, however, when a twist of fate forces him to choose between loyalty to his family and his new found faith in himself--Container.

A wayward son of a Hong Kong gangster crossed a crime boss and sent to hiding in a Taiwanese village where he relearned his rock style of drumming to Asian Taiko, with his past caught up to him when he returned to Hong Kong as a member of his adopted Taiko troupe. Story is worn but not on the art of Taiko.
