12?year?old Dre Parker (Smith) could have been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother’s (Henson) latest career move has landed them in Beijing, China. Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying ? the feeling is mutual ? but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible.
Even worse, Dre’s feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts “the karate kid” on the floor with ease. Without any friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn until he meets maintenance man Mr. Han (Chan), who is secretly a master of kung fu.
