Synopsis by Jonathan E. Laxamana

The third installment in the Hong Kong Swordsman trilogy is intended to recapture the success of the second film, including its gender-bending performance by Brigitte Lin. Lin reprises her role as Asia the Invincible, a swordsman whose use of a supernatural scroll caused him to turn into a woman. The scroll is once again the object of contention. Resurrected from the dead, she finds that everyone from Japanese ninjas to the Spanish navy are after the scroll. She is confronted by further gender complications when a woman named Snow Joey Wong, a former lover of Asia, assumes Asia's male identity.
