Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Sometime in the lengthy pre-modern history of China, a man (Ti Lung) finds himself framed for poisoning some important local leaders, as he is the only one in his neighborhood known to possess the skills to make the poison, known as "Sacred Water." He eludes capture while he searches for clues about the real villain. Eventually he is captured by an evil, lesbian monarch, and the real battle begins.
