Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Yu Ming-sang spins this martial arts fantasy loosely adapted from Romeo and Juliet. The Chun clan and the Ha Hou clan are desperately vying with one another to regain their respective former glories. Though their families are at each other's throats, Choi Siu-ling (Michelle Lee Kar-yan), the princess of the Chun, and Ha Hou (Lau Sek-ming), of the similarly named family, have fallen in love. This is particularly galling to Ha's wrathful aunt (Kara Hui Ying-hung), who is single-minded in her pursuit for family glory. Meanwhile, one of Choi's guardians, General Lau Qun-hung (Lau Chi-hung), tries to steal her magical jade pipe in order to give it to the evil Wizard of Yin (Lau Shun) but accidentally takes a fake pipe instead, planted by Lau's wife, General Choi Siu-ching (Cynthia Yang Li-ching).
