Growing up the son of a SERVANT in the court of CHARLES I in England, young EDWARD RYAN's abilities as a musical prodigy were seen merely as an amusement for the courtiers. Exposed to the otherworldly music of China's Shaolin Temple during a visit to the court by the monk-like DESCENDENTS of MARCO POLO, Edward sells himself into the caravan heading back East in hopes of studying with the musical MASTER of Shaolin. After proving his worth over the course of years, Edward is allowed to study the mystical blend of music and the martial arts at the foot of the Master, and must choose between a life of music and a life of war when his former childhood tormentor, now KING CHARLES II, demands that the now-legendary Edward return home to fight for England.
