An Asian and Asian American icon of unimaginable stature and influence, Bruce Lee revolutionized the martial arts by combining influences drawn from around the world. By blending cultural history with biography, 'Like Water' unearths the cultural strands that Lee intertwined in his rise to global stardom.
