get-rich quick schemes with his best friend JP Money.
is kicked back into reality when his mom and Michael are hurt in a
car accident, leaving his father to watch over the store and forcing
C-dub to take over his mom’s ping pong class of misfits. C-dub
starts to appreciate the benefits of ping pong when he starts using
the class to make some extra money on the side and befriending one of
the kids who happens to have a beautiful older sister.
when the Wang family livelihood is threatened by a rival ping pong
player’s attempts to lure the kids away, C-dub begins to take
things more seriously. With the National Golden Cock Tournament
coming up and an injured Michael unable to defend his title, C-dub
must become the player he pretends to be and defend his family’s
ping pong dynasty.
