Li is a harried author who pens the serial adventures of Dr. Wai, a grave-robbing adventurer in 1930s China. In his current story, Dr. Wai is chasing a mystical treasure, but must contend with rival grave-robbers and dastardly Japanese soldiers. Complicating matters are Dr. Wai’s sidekicks and a sexy femme fatale who may or may not be an ally in his quest. However, back in reality, the author has other — not entirely coincidental — issues: a pending divorce to his estranged wife, and a couple of sparring office assistants who insist on writing themselves into the latest Dr. Wai adventures.
