Director Benny Chan (NEW POLICE STORY, SHAOLIN), with action director Sammo Hung (IP MAN, DETECTIVE DEE: MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME), bring us a tale of skilled martial artists taking a stand to protect their village against a ruthless army.
In 1914, after the collapse of the Qing dynasty, Yang Kenan (Sean Lau Ching Wan, Mad Detective) is appointed as guardian to defend the rural village of Pucheng. After Yang arrests the son of a sadistic warlord, Cao Shaolun (Louis Koo Flash Point), the warlord s army threatens to bring death and destruction. As the odds for peace lessen and the pressure mounts for Yang to release the murderous captive, a stirring tale of heroic resistance unfolds.
