Tiger Hung (Louis Koo) is used to breaking women's hearts. He's just not used to their asking for it. That's what happens to the dedicated bachelor when he makes a pilgrimage to China's Mount Emei. He meets martial-arts master May (Sammi Cheng), who is very interested in improving her combat skills. According to lore, she needs to experience heartbreak in order to learn a deadly sword technique. Tiger agrees -- but breaking her heart proves more difficult than it seems.
