Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

When the construction of an express highway through Paiwan threatens an ancient burial ground, the leader of an indigenous Eastern Taiwan tribe sets out for Taipei in order to protest the project and protect his people in the feature debut from cinematographer-turned-director Tony Cheung (Drunken Master II and Beast Cops). Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, The Sage Hunter stars Paiwan tribe leader Ahronglong Sakinu as himself in a moving account of one man's determination to preserve his people's way of life in an era of unprecedented change.
