Heroes of Shaolin () aka Heroes of the Wild is the Americanized title for the 1977Hong Kongkung fu epic 'Daai miu si yue siu piu haak'. The two-part story was directed by William Chang and co-written by Chang and relatively unknown kung-fu film writer Chang Hsin Yee. Like many kung fu movies from the late 1970s, the main theme of the film focuses on revenge, but the story holds a unique twist that sets it apart from many other films of the era.
Part one opens with a young boy and his father flying a kite on a secluded beach. The father is soon confronted by a past enemy, who demands a rematch after an embarrassing defeat. The young boy is horror-stricken as, after his father's defeat, the father takes his own life before the young boy's eyes and rushes to avenge his death. The challenger easily defeats the boy, but rather than kill again, he allows the boy to journey with him, offering to teach the boy in martial arts so that he may one day take appropriate revenge.
