Shaolin is the home of the 1500 year old Shaolin Temple and the birthplace of Kung Fu and Zen Buddhism. Visitors flock to see the commercial face of Shaolin, a brand made famous through block busting martial arts movies. But behind locked doors and beyond the reach of tourist cameras, lies the real Shaolin Temple. Follow the private lives of three generations of monks. Experience the past, present and future of the temple through their eyes as our cameras capture the monastic sect's most secret training sessions, amazingly balletic displays and their ancient rites of passage.
