Along with Red Heroine, Swordswoman of Huangjiang is one of the very few Chinese marital arts film still in existence from the late '20s and early '30s. Chen Zhi-gong and her brother were a popular pair of characters that appeared in a series of films. In this story, the pair arrive in a town and agree to save a small child who has been abducted by a falcon. After slaying the bird, Chen Zhi-gong's donkey is stolen. She battles with, and eventually makes friends with the person who stole the donkey. Those two, along with Chen's brother then prepare to take on a gang of criminals. That event was shown in a later film, which sadly no longer exists.
