Description
"China 859 A.D. The once-mighty Tang dynasty is in decline. The emperor is weak and incompetent. His corrupt government no longer controls the land. Unrest sweeps the country. Village by village, an underground alliance forms: The House of Flying Daggers. Based near the imperial capital the House of Flying Daggers moves in the shadows. Stealing from the rich to give to the poor, they earn the support of the people. At the same time, they are feared and hated, by their bitter rivals, the local deputies." - title screens. Local captains Leo and Jin set out to investigate a blind young dancer named Mei, who is believed to have ties to the Flying Daggers. Leo arrests Mei, only to have Jin break her out in a plot to gain her trust and lead the police to the new leader of the secret organization. Things are, however, far more complicated than they seem.
