Dr. Z's Martial Arts Trilogy
Free door prizes, champagne, poster and book signing,

SYNOPSIS: The strong winds of a vindicative war blow turbulently in this modern day action-adventure motion picture where blood brothers dead set on proving that the other is not worthy enough to live, or the planet is not big enough for both of them to exist.

It's a battle where raging fury knows no limits! It is final showdown that explodes on the big screen unlike anything seen in a long time.

In the third cinematic installment of this trilogy action martial arts series Dr. Z reprises his starring role as character Billy Lee (American Hwang Fei Hung, Chasing the Dragon, The Deadly Cure) an expert martial artist with the aspiration of becoming a film star in Hollywood - like Bruce Lee - he too discovers that it's still just as tough to make it in an industry where outsiders stand little chance of succeeding.
-Hanshi Campbell, Dojo News

Lew (Dr. Z, Chasing the Dragon, Combat Mortal) arrives in San Francisco to find the master's missing son. After an exhaustive but fruitless search, Lew becomes despondent. Wandering aimlessly through the City, he finds himself at the edge of the Bay, staring at Alcatraz Island, a stranger trapped in a foreign land. At that point he is attacked by three muggers, but is arrested for defending himself with excessive force. He is let off by sympathetic police detective O'Rourke (Sid Campbell, Master Demon). A grateful but penniless Lew finds shelter in a skid row medical clinic run by Liz Montgomery (Katie Damian), and in return offers his not inconsiderable skills in Asian martial arts and medicine. Through the clinic, Lew discovers that the missing son is involved with a local organized crime. In order to find his master's missing son, Lew confronts the crime syndicate. The syndicate boss Furlong (William Appel) sends Lew a professional hit man "Scarface" Ono (Steve Bishiki) after Lew disposes of his local henchmen. The final clash/martial arts showdown will take place on Treasure Island, ...will Lew perish or prevail?.....

In 1994 Dr. Z was already a hip "Hollywood Doctor", but wished to fulfill his martial arts Grandmaster's (the late Bruce Lee) cinematic role. He attends numerous auditions, but even with his clients' "Hollywood Star" connections, the best he is offered is to "Play Dead" in major studio movies. In order to not disgrace his Grandmaster, he shuns stereotyped roles, and decides to write his own script and produce a movie accurately portraying Asians in America. Meanwhile he finds a love interest Michelle (Lacee Kine) who's more interested in Dr. Z as the doctor, rather than the actor. With the aid of his attorney (Mark Silverman), he lands an important appointment with a Hollywood Studio head. Ten seconds into the meeting, he is floored by the cold rebuff "...You will never be a Hollywood star..." Infuriated and insulted, Dr. Z sets out to finance his movie himself. In a span of 7 years, call it bad luck or destiny, he exhausts all of his energy and resources, sells his house, is separated from his love....yet, the movie is still far from completion. Will Dr. Z ever fulfill his dream and honor his Grandmaster?... Or has he flushed his life away...... Based on the true story of Dr. Z.
