9th century China. A 10-year-old general’s daughter Nie Yinniang (Shu Qi, Chinese Zodiac, Legend of the Fist) is abducted by a nun who initiates her in the martial arts; transforming her into an exceptional assassin charged with eliminating cruel and corrupt local governors.

One day, having failed in a task, she is sent back by her mistress to the land of her birth, with orders to kill the man to whom she was promised – a cousin who now leads the largest military region in North China.

From the critically acclaimed director Hou Hsiao-Hsien (Flight of the Red Balloon) comes an exquisite and captivating tale of love, death and the importance of honour.
