A mysterious magician Chang Hsien (Tony Leung) catches the eye of local warlord, Bully Lei (Sean Lau). Lei hopes to use him to win the affections of Liu Yin (Zhou Xun), a woman he forced into being his seventh concubine. Unbeknownst to him, Chang is the fiancé of Liu who has been waiting for him to rescue her. Chang, who was hell-bent on destroying Lei, discovers that the man behind the evil deeds is actually Chang’s head butler (Michael Chee) who has joined forces with the Japanese in his misguided efforts to unite the country. To defeat Michael and win back the heart of Liu, Chang pulls out his ultimate magic trick.
