Marky's cousin Martial Polo invites him to Beijing, after hearing of his first trip overseas to Tokyo. Martial Polo is a Wushu enthusiast who dreams of being a renowned martial arts expert like Great-grandmother MuayThai Polo. Martial turns Marky's holiday into an exhausting strength-building, endurance-training workout. Can Marky endure Martial's bossy nature and find a way to enjoy sightseeing in Beijing at a slower pace?
