| King Hu's poetry shines through again
During the Ming Dynasty a priceless handwritten Buddhist Tripitaka scroll finds a General (Tien Feng) has his eye on it. He plans to take it from the monastery where it is held. The abbott finds a successor to help guard it.

Meister director, King Hu applies his usual slow measured approach in this slow burning drama with his usual typical style and some superb camerawork by Henry Chan. However, it does suffer from slowness in places but the films poetry inevitable shines through.
