Following 3,000 days of training at the Shaolin Martial Arts School in China, Rin Sakurazawa returns to her grandfather's dojo in Japan. Unfortunately, the dojo now lays in a state of decay, with the students having abandoned it. Rin seeks to restore her grandfather's legacy, although is unsure where to start. By chance, while attending Seikan International University, Rin starts to make a name for herself playing lacrosse. Deploying skills learned in her training, Rin carriers her team to several victories. The performance wins the admiration of her teammates, who end up helping to reestablish the dojo. However, the Seikan International University harbors a secret. A hidden motive that goes all the way up to the highest faculty that work there...

Background and Trivia

  • The movie is often positioned as a sequel to the Hong Kong film Shaolin Soccer from 2001. For example, Singapore advertisments noted it as being a follow up to the earlier movie. Although the two productions share the same producer, Stephen Chow, and two actors, Lam Chi Chung and Tin Kai Man, there is no continutiy between the two movies.
