In 19th century Qing Dynasty China, a warrior (Yun-Fat) gives his magical jade sword, Green Destiny, to his lover (Yeoh) to deliver to safe keeping, but it is stolen, and the chase is on to find it. As the search leads to the House of Yu, the story takes on a whole different level, including the manipulations of the wicked warrior, Jade Fox (Peipei), a mysterious young woman (Ziyi), and her desert lover (Chen).
