Hero of Shaolin is set during China's Ching Dynasty. As can be surmised, much of the film takes place in a Shaolin temple. Lo Lieh plays the title character, the temple's best student. His martial-arts skills are called into play when villains attempt to invade the temple and kill its occupants. The story is familiar, but the action is all-new.
