Martin is divorced, out-of-shape and out of friends. When his son Liam comes to stay for the first weekend since the break-up Martin is desperate to reconnect. But Liam is more interested in his hero - Martial Artist Legend: Bruce Lee. With their relationship on the line Martin is running out of ideas. What if he could convince Liam that he is the reincarnation of Bruce Lee?


Following a rigorous assessment process of over 300 applications, Bruce was one of 15 films selected to go through into the latest Creative England’s iShorts scheme, delivered as part of the BFI NET.WORK.


As well as the funds received from Creative England the filmmakers raised additional budget through a Crowdfunder and Social Media Campaign.
