The island of Omosai has much to offer - bustling city life for shopping and entertainment, relaxing parks for meditation and reflection, and the time-honored tradition of bonsai. Master Chow Khan is a respected resident of Omosai and the proud owner of a successful shop which sells decorated holiday bonsais. However, all of Master Khan's e-commerce prosperity, and the peace of Omosai, are about to be shattered by a dark force from his past… Now, the only one who can stop this threat is a janitor turned ninja trainee from Chow Khan's shop. Years of martial arts study, meditation, and mopping have led to this. Get ready to enter the streets of fury and save the city.
