Herb Doctor 

Documentary Short | USA | 2018 (Post Production)


This documentary is an intimate portrait of an herb doctor in Chinatown, Philadelphia. He's been operating this small herb shop/clinic for around 20 years and has built great reputations and respects among the community. 

However, very few people know about his other identity. Back to 70s, he was one of the top Kung Fu masters in Hong Kong. He left home and immigrated to U.S. during the culture revolution. For 30 years, he's never been able to go back to Hong Kong for even once. 

But dreams never stops, he plans to use all his savings to open a Kung Fu School. "Life doesn't always turn out to be what we wish, but we fight." He smiled.
