Jimmy's Sifu (trainer) chooses newcomer Li Jié (Haye Lee) – who can do impressive martial arts leaps – to dance in the head of the lion, and puts Jimmy in the back. Jimmy doesn’t dare challenge his Sifu’s decision, but is determined to regain his rightful place. However, to do so, he has to first overcome his jealousy. Kung Fu Leeuw, screening in Rotterdam, is dedicated to all Sifus, Senseis and trainers who teach our children what dedication means.
