    • Synopsis
    • In the Ming Dynasty when eunuchs abused their power, Uncle Tsao of East Wing and Uncle Lee of West Wing stood for righteous and evil powers. The former was paralyzed but loyal. When he found Lee tried to overthrow the reign, he teamed up with Lady Kao to intercept a confidential letter sent by Lee to Sun Yu-Po, owner of Hill Villa, in order to reveal their conspiracy.
      In a secret action, Lady Kao and her assassins Mon and Yeh annihilated the Sun Yu-Po gang and took the confidential letter to Uncle Tsao, who then behaved entirely different. He was not paralyzed. Instead, he was skilled in Kung Fu. He already murdered Uncle Lee and then attempted to kill them all. He was in fact the real traitor. At the crucial moment, Uncle Tsao’s right-hand man “Little Crown” killed Uncle Tsao and helped them out. But love entangled among Lady Kao, Mon, Mon’s wife, and Yeh. A storm of affection was about to erupt.
