In this beautifully shot wuxia epic, a self-taught highly skilled assassin swordsman is haunted by the destructive impact his deadly talents have and from the absence of a competent swords-person whom he can fight wanders around searching at the same time for a good location for his grave and lives the remaining of his life to the full as he is dying. The master swordsman, weary of the bloodshed and violence from the martial arts world and as a classically taught descendant of a legendary swordsman family, banishes himself to the humble life of a vagrant, wandering the fringes of society in search of real life and its simpleness absconding his will to fight. But his violent past refuses to let him go quietly. The master swordsman and the skilled assassin regain their ability to wield swords without hesitating to fight those disrupting the peace and to defeat those who desperately crave despotism. The master swordsman honors his dying ally, the assassin who sought for a worthy swordsman to fight and if fate allows to die honorably.
