Bruce Lee passed away at the peak of his career. After years of enduring prejudice, racism, discrimination, and countless roles that he and his fans deemed too small, he finally reached the top of Hollywood’s heap—only to die unexpectedly at 32. It happened days before the premiere of Enter the Dragon, which became his highest-grossing film.
Lee started acting at a young age and moved between the US and his family’s homeland, Hong Kong. He was anxious to prove himself as an actor who could do more than martial arts and determined to pave the way for other actors of Chinese descent. Shown through the eyes of his friends and colleagues (including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar), Lee’s story features a rare selection of scenes from his films, before and during his glory days.
