It is an age of chaos in the dusk of the Ming dynasty with all the rebels and invaders. Knowing the fall of the empire is inevitable, the Sung Zing Emperor slays his wives and daughters for the sake of their dignity. Princess Cheung-ping toughs through it, and hides herself in a nunnery, hoping to live in seclusion thereafter. But the royal son-in-law, Chow Sai-hin happens to find her in the nunnery. Sai-hin convinces Cheung-ping to fake surrender to the Qing court in exchange for the release of her brother and a proper burial for her father. After all is set and done, the two of them get married under a camphor tree and drink poison wine to sacrifice for their country.
