Lavish but muddled (and ultimately dull) story originally broadcast as a four-hour miniseries. American businessman Nicholas Orton (Gibson), who once studied Chinese literature and history, meets cute with a mystery woman who turns out to be Kwan Ying (Ling), the Goddess of Mercy. She tells Nick he has 3 days to save the human world from slavery by saving the classic Chinese manuscript "The Journey to the West" from falling into the wrong hands. Helping Nick are characters from the story, including the anarchic Monkey King (Wong).
