Synopsis

A power thirsty eunuch assassinates the defense minister and sends his henchmen to eliminate the children of his victim, hidden in the mountains. But the perverse plan is sabotaged by a mysterious group of swordsmen. The first film made by King Hu after moving to Taiwan in search of the creative freedom that he couldn’t find in Hong Kong breathed new life into wuxia formulas.
