synopsis

A Journey West tells a little-known tale about the Tang Monk, Tripitaka, before he embarks on his arduous journey to bring the sacred sutras from the west, and achieves deification after successfully negotiating Eight-One Tasks to prove his faith and resolve. As we see him for the first time, the Tang Monk is leading his three disciples into the city of Shache.
