Synopsis
Synopsis
Director
China, 859. The once flourishing Tang Dynasty is in decline. Unrest is raging and the corrupt government is locked in battle with rebel armies. The largest and most prestigious of these is the House of Flying Daggers with its mysterious new leader. Two local captains, Leo and Jin, are ordered to capture the new leader and the two hatch an elaborate plan. Captain Jin will pretend to be a lone warrior and rescue the beautiful, blind revolutionary Mei from prison, earning her trust and escorting her to the secret headquarters of the House of Flying Daggers. The plan works, but to their surprise, Jin and Mei fall deeply in love on their long journey. What lies ahead for Jin and Mei, these star-crossed lovers? If this is true love, then why are there plots in their heads and secrets in their hearts?
