Synopsis[edit]

After a set-back in life, former Hong Kong undercover detective Pau Kai-chung (Chin Siu-ho) heads to the Wudang Mountains in Hubei, China to get away from life. At Wudang he re-connects with his former martial arts senior Mo Yee-shan (Yuen Qiu), who now operates an inn and martial arts school in the Wudang Mountains. She also takes in a mentally retarded man named Ho Ching-tung (Derek Kok) with a mysterious past. Kai-chung takes up a job as a chef at Yee-shan's inn.

Originally known for being a land of spiritual calmness, Wudang enters a state of chaos after a group of new tai chi students from Hong Kong are taken in. The new students include the fighter Cheung Ka-kong (Timmy Hung), son of a wealthy businessman Lok Yik-hin (Jonathan Cheung), personal female bodyguard Yeung Ching-wu (Toby Leung), model Siu Yuk (Regen Cheung) and behind came Yee Shan’s daughter Lok Yeung (Tavia Yeung).

The appearance of Lok Yeung triggers a painful memory in Kai Chung. Lok Yeung’s purpose in staying in Wudang is to convince her mother to give her lodging establishment to a Hong Kong investment group so as to gain credit for herself. After a series of incidents, Yee Shan promises to give up the establishment if Lok Yeung manages to win a competition in three months. Meanwhile, Yee Shan purposely injures herself so Kai Chung can teach her taichi class. Eventually, Ching Tung overcomes his mental illness and becomes well again. He exposes Kai Chung’s true identity, and danger shrouds the Wudang Mountains.[3]
