    During the third century B.C., an ambitious King, Ying Zheng is obsessed with unifying all of China and becoming its first emperor. To this end, he embarks upon a reign of terror and brutality against anyone standing between him and his destiny.
    Hoping to contribute in some way to Ying Zheng's dream of Chinese unification Lady Zhao, his lover from childhood, devises an intricate fake assassination plot against Ying Zheng which, when " uncovered ", will provide him with a legitimate excuse to invade the neighboring kingdom of Yan, his greatest obstacle to unification.
