Nicu lives with his gang of friends in the streets and parks around Bucharest's North Station. Huffing from bags of silver paint, they beg and solicit to survive, building friendships among the growing street community of kids.
Nicu is adopted by Bruce Lee, the notorious “King of the Underworld” and goes to live with him in the tunnels underneath Bucharest.
As Nicu grows up, he starts to realise that perhaps the King of the Underworld is not the perfect father,and has to make a choice between staying in Bruce's gang, or living a 'normal' life above ground.
Filmed over six years by Joost Vandebrug, BRUCE LEE AND THE OUTLAW is a modern-day Oliver Twist story under the streets of Bucharest.
