Informed that Prince On-sai has long planned to rebel, the court has Chau Fa-lung and Gong Luk-wan infiltrate into his mansion as spies. Full of envy for the highly regarded Luk-wan, eunuch Bat Lap leads him into the forbidden Bak-fa Pavilion, where trespassers are punished and beheaded. Prince On-sai’s daughter practices martial arts at the pavilion, which is off-limit to all males. When she catches sight of the trespasser, the princess is instantly captivated by his talent and graceful bearing. She gives him her sword and the promise of marriage.
When the prince finally revolts, Fa-lung has Luk-wan unwittingly pass misinformation to the princess, lowering her guard. The assault by Fa-lung that night wipes out the army of Prince On-sai. Although the wounded princess breaks through the siege, the prince and Bat Lap are captured. Aware of the double-crossing, Luk-wan deeply regrets his involvement.
Fa-lung prepares to execute the shackled prince in front of his camp. To save her father, the princess surrenders her army, on condition that Luk-wan is killed for breaching her trust. Willing to die to prove his innocence, Luk-wan is about to commit suicide with the princess’s sword when Fa-lung intervenes. He manages to clear up all misunderstanding.
