This big hit at the Sundance Film Festival had audiences cheering. Set during the Ming Dynasty, this acclaimed production tells the story of a power hungry eunuch who employs an evil sect in his quest to rule China. An extravagant climax features dizzying acrobatics and masterful fight sequences.

During the Ming Dynasty, Tsao Sui Yan, the power-hungry and ruthless eunuch leader of East Chamber, craves his own kingdom. He intends to destroy the rebelling clans by using a traitorous secretary's children as bait. Ultimately, the two warring factions (the rebels led by Chow Wai-on and Mo-yan Yau, the East Chamber led by Tsao) end up in the rundown Dragon Inn right in the middle of the desert. Jade King, the beautiful owner and proprietor of Dragon Inn, hopes to cash in on the incident. But problems arise when Wai-on, desperate for the quickest route of escape, attempts to marry Jade in the hope of prying information from her; and the two clans go head-to-head in a no-holds barred finale battle.
