The martial arts comedy Anna in Kung Fu Land centers on a young woman who dreams of becoming a movie star. Her father was a monk of the Shaolin temple, who defected to Japan after representing the temple during a martial arts tournament. There he met a Japanese woman and later bore Anna (Miriam Yeung). He starts a martial school in Japan, although he dreams of being reconciled with his former mates.
When his school is invited to be part of a martial arts tournament, he sends his daughter as his representative. She believes this might give her the opportunity to get her big break, but when that does not happen she becomes focused on beating the opposition in the tournament. She also becomes embroiled with the marketing executive (Ekin Cheng) who becomes her first love.
