A Hong Kong “Category 3” (exploitation) classic set during the Sung Dynasty, as a corrupt magistrate subjects a lovely, innocent young bride to inconceivable physical punishments after “convicting” her of killing her husband (by causing his penis to explode, of course). Plenty of raunch and unintentional humor. Viewer discretion advised.
Huang is a taciturn detective, hired to catch the elusive Li Chonggao in an illicit tryst. Having failed that, he placates himself by collecting evidence: taking pictures of a rumpled bed or attempting to question the locals. When he meets the stunning Yu Ran, he suspects she may be the key to capturing Li, but she has secrets of her own.
