In a camel caravan that travels from place to place for convoying goods, its members are all proficient at martial arts. The leader, Master Ge, is a brilliant archer. His daughter and disciples are skilful fighters. They are commissioned to convoy some commodities from Xinjiang to the border between Shanxi and Gansu, but are obstructed by the government’s rifle squad. While some of the caravaners harbour their own sinister designs, Master Ge’s daughter and one of the disciples are blinded by love. Danger lurks all along their journey. How do they fulfill their commitment and discharge their duty? How do bows and arrows contest with rifles?
