The plot of this martial arts film is the old chestnut about two Shaolin Temple pupils who make their way into the wicked outside world and take divergent paths. Ambitious Dong joins up with the nasty Royal Eunuch's forces, while wholesome Zhang allies with feisty femme Qiuxue against imperial oppression. After Dong betrays his friends and almost kills Zhang, the latter convalesces in the countryside, studies tai chi and takes on Dong and the Eunuch in a final set-to.
