Three brothers of the famous Yang clan (Sun Ma Si-tsang, Sek Yin-tsi, Lam Kar-sing) lose in a border scuffle against soldiers from the Western Liao. Fortunately, the Yang clan has a secret weapon: Young servant girl Liu Kam-fa (Yu Lai-zhen) is actually a powerful martial artist who is also an expert at magical spells. Not only does she avenge the three Yang brothers, she also leads the Song army to the enemy’s lair, defeating demons with her magical powers. However, Kamfa chooses beauty over kingdom, asking the emperor to arrange a marriage between her and the eldest of the Yang men. From action to fantasy to romantic comedy, this genre-twisting delight is being screened on Valentine’s Day as a sincere blessing from us to you and your beloved!
