After decades at the service of Chinese Tang Emperor, Lai Xi (Nakai Kiichi) longs to return to Japan. Gaining a passport back to Japan is only possible if he captures and executes Lieutenant Li (Jiang Wen), a renegade soldier wanted for leading a violent mutiny when he refused orders to kill female and child prisoners. Soon, the paths of these master swordsmen cross, but a caravan carrying a Buddhist monk (Zhao Wei) and a sacred relic coveted by Master An (Wang Xueqi) will force them to delay their final fight… but for how long?
