Origin Bound is based on true events. The story is centered around Howard Wang, a massively successful movie star at the apex of his career. The sudden discovery of a terminal illness sends him crashing back to reality. Faced with impending mortality, Howard decides to take charge of his life and fulfill his life-long wish. While in his weakened state and at his most vulnerable, he discovers who his friends are and how unfulfilling fame and fortune can be. As the countdown to the end continues, fate has more surprises for Howard, as he gains new perspectives of life and reconciles with people from his past.
This is a film that aims to inspire people. At the same time, it touches on contemporary themes such as some of the darker sides of the film industry as well as the stark contrast in treatment and understanding of Falun Gong in China versus the rest of the world.
