Though extremely intelligent and highly skilled in Shaolin self-defense, fifteen-year-old George Ma is crippled by loss of memory - the result of a horrific incident in his past.
The agents of George's journey back to health are classmates "Hook," confined to a wheelchair after a motorcycle accident; Amy, a blind computer whiz; and Heather who is deaf. The four friends form the Cripples' Club to fight
against the cruelties of a gang at school.
But the ultimate fight is for survival itself as the four struggle to meet a dare thrown down be Hook himself, a challenge that, if successful, will mean they "never need to be afraid of anything ever again!"
