Synopsis: Ancient China, 300 BC. A mighty ruler of the Qin kingdom wages a bloody war with six neighbouring states desiring to unite them all into one great empire. Crafty assassins are always on the hunt for the prudent strategist and fearless warrior’s head. But only three mercenaries strike terror into him: Broken Sword, Flying Snow and Long Sky. Their skills are unparalleled; those who tried to claim the allotted reward had been failing for over 10 years.
