Summary
  • Set in 19th-century China, two master warriors are faced with their greatest challenge when the treasured Green Destiny sword is stolen. A young aristocratic woman prepares for an arranged marriage, but soon reveals her superior fighting talents and her romantic past. As each warrior battles for justice, they come face-to-face with their worst enemy, and the enduring power of love
  • In 19th-century China, dedicated martial arts warrior Li Mu Bai is preparing to retire. He gives his magical 400-year-old sword, Green Destiny, to his partner in arms Shu Lien to entrust to nobleman Sir Te. Soon after, Green Destiny is stolen by a lithe young thief with knowledge of Wudan, the sacred, secret martial art of Li Mu Bai's sect. It turns out the thief is Jen, the daughter of the provincial governor, who chafes at the thought of the marriage her parents have arranged for her. Jen's governess and mentor is none other than Jade Fox, a legendary thief who murdered Li Mu Bai's master and stole his training manual. What follows is a tale of fighting and revenge, redemption and love
