Peter Pan meets Enter the Dragon in this thoroughly weird Taiwanese children's flick directed by Herman Yau Lai-to and Ha Sau-hin. The film opens when a video game falls from the sky and into the possession of ten-year old chubby Chu Si-ting (Kok Siu-man) and his elder brother Chu Si-man. Yet just as they decide to give their newfound game a try, they get sucked into the electric bizarro-world behind the television screen. There they get caught in the middle of a squabble between a band of nefarious kung-fu pirates who is trying to swipe a precious key from Siu-lone (played by Sik Siu-lung famed for his pint-sized kung-fu moves) the kid boss of Treasure Island. After Si-ting defeats Siu-lone in a martial arts match, the dastardly Captain Hook tries to recruit the lad to destroy Siu-lone and the island itself.
