Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Witness the extreme feats of men who have transcended their perceived physical limitations by harnessing their Qi through the ancient art of Qigong in a fascinating documentary that aims to be as entertaining as it is educational. A word that translates into English as "breath" or 'air," "Qi" represents the energy that exists in all human beings. Though rigid self discipline and lifelong practice, Qigong practitioners are said to not only increase health and lifespan, but endure blows that may prove deadly to the unconditioned person. With numerous demonstrations highlighting the seemingly super-human powers bestowed upon Qigong practitioners, this release offers compelling evidence that the flesh may not be as fragile as we are often led to believe.
