Bonus features include deleted scenes, an extensive photo gallery and a poignant interview with Jet Li on Autism.

Wang (Jet Li), a maintenance man at an Ocean Park-style water theme park, lives with his 20-year-old son, David (Wen Zhang). David suffers from autism and is unable to function independently in the outside world. He is a competent swimmer and regularly joins Wang at work, where he is allowed to play in the large aquariums with the dolphins, turtles and other tropical fish. However, when Wang discovers he has terminal cancer and only a matter of months left to live, he must help David assimilate into normal society, or risk him being incarcerated in a hellish mental asylum.
