Starring award-winning casts Shu Qi (Three Times, Millennium Mambo) and Joseph Chang (The Victims' Game), it's a quirky, hilarious action-comedy as Wuxia and musical mashup with hopeless romance.
In a rural village filled with complicated relationships, the villagers are unaware of the outsider trying to wipe out their town. Before the attack, a mysterious guest arrives at the village with a mystical tool that could erase one's memory. He came to the town for a particular purpose——Is he with the assassin? Will the villagers be able to fight against those outsiders?
