Legendary schlockmeister Wong Jing -- along with Yeung Wai-yip -- direct this thoroughly convoluted martial arts fantasy about brilliant swordsman Fragrant Chu (Aaron Kwok Fu-shing), his three sisters (Gloria Yip Wan-yee, Winnie Lau Siu-wai, and Anita Yuen Wing-yee), and his dim-witted associate Metal Flower Hu (Deric Wan Siu-lun). Looking to prove his martial arts talents, Chu challenges kung fu master Flowerless (Chingmy Yau Suk-ching) to a duel. Though the battle ends in a draw, the two part amicably. Later, Chu gets enmeshed in a plot involving Flowerless' twin sister, Night Bloom, and a villainous character called Batman. When Chu winds up pulped and diminished from his encounter with the dastardly Batman, he recruits the aid of the mysterious Jelly Fish (Sharla Cheung Man), who not only heals Chu, but thwarts the villains as well.
