The temple is in ruins and the Grandmaster is dead.  The five brothers flee for their lives and split up in hopes of survival.  For the first time in his life, Malao is alone.  He is only 11 years old but he is a martial arts master -- as are his brothers.  Each of the brothers has a special power that they use to survive.  For Malao, it is the monkey power.  Now he must use his power to not only survive, but to set things right again.  And to avenge the Grandmaster's death at the hands of Ying.
