Agnes, a teenager whose turbulent emotions pile up after her parents’ complicated divorce, her grandfather’s car accident and problems at school, is sent out of sight to spend her school break in her grandfather’s retirement home. There Agnes meets a local hero Harriet, who introduces the girl to the exciting world of martial arts. Through the secrets of Kung Fu, Agnes gains an important insight – she is not to blame for the problems of all the people around her and can only be responsible for her own balance and inner peace.
