- During the Southern Sung Dynasty, Prince CHIU KWAI-SHING (Pierre Ngo) and Prince CHIU KWAI-WO (Lai Lok Yi) are rival brothers and they both covet the throne of the kingdom.
As their strategic advisors, Chancellor YU CHING (Lai Yiu Cheung) and Chancellor TUNG CHIU (Kent Cheng) are long-time family friends as well as peer mentors. Unexpectedly, YU CHING’s father YU POK-MAN (Cheung Kwok Keung) courts disaster by making an indiscreet remark. Following the confiscation of their property, the family falls apart. YU CHING loses contact with both his younger brother YU TSING (Patrick Tang) and younger sister YU JING (Natalie Tong). Being deceived, YU TSING has become a eunuch suffering humiliation. YU JING, who experiences amnesia, has been adopted by YIM SAM-LEUNG (Kristal Tin), a daughter of a gang leader. Misconstruing that TUNG CHIU has betrayed his father for pursuing private ends, YU CHING joins force with the treacherous minister YEUNG CHI-SHAN (Lee Kwok Lun) against him. As the rivalry intensifies, both open strife and veiled struggle comes to light. A battle between King Makers sparks off a chain of startling events imbued with aggression, deceitfulness and malevolence.
