Wang Yu is part of a family that is very respected. At the start of the movie the new King is looking to become Wang Yu's friend rather than his enemy. He decides to hold a martial arts tournament with the finest sword...展开known to man as the prize. Wang Yu is absolutely obsessed with swords, so of course he has to enter the tournament. After winning the sword and adding it to his already huge collection, he finds out this is not the finest blade ever made. He goes way beyond obsession at this point and leaves to find a hermit who owns this supposedly #1 ranked sword. When he sees that it really is the best, he must have it. But, he finds out this old hermit isn't the pushover he looks to be. After learning all the sword skills he can, he comes back a year later to claim the greatest sword in the world.
