Since losing contact with her husband, Ngai Hei Yin, Tong Tze Heung has been residing with her brother King Wai at Fong Yan Kit’s home. King Wai is suspected of participating in the resistance effort against the Mongols, and is under investigation from none other than Tong’s own husband, Ngai. Re-united by chance after a long separation, Ngai wishes to rekindle their relationship, and so issues a pass for her. Aided by Siu Kuen and her brother, Lik Hang, King Wai are able to intercept key intelligence. In the process, Tze Heung learns that her husband has turned traitor and become betrothed to the daughter of General Temur.
The intelligence, as it turns out, was actually disinformation sowed as a ruse to uncover resistance personnel. As a result, Siu Kuen and King Wai are rooted out and put under interrogation and torture. Tze Heung ventures into the command post and, employing considerable wit, forces her husband to release the hostages. The group then keeps a low profile, living in a poor village and plotting what is to become the Mid-Autumn Insurrection. Under the command of Yan Kit, and with encouragement from Tze Heung, King Wai sends the signal for the army to crush the Mongols. During the raid, Ngai succumbs to a mortal wound.
