In Ancient China, "Drizzle" is the most deadly and ruthless assassin of the Dark Stone gang. After a life of theft and murder, she seeks to atone for her ways and leave the gang forever. Undergoing a drastic procedure to alter her appearance, she changes her name to Jing (Michelle Yeoh) and starts a new life in the capital. Even with her newfound life and budding romance with Ah-Sheng, the Dark Stone are hot on her trail. She alone holds the secret of the mystical Buddhist monk's remains, which legend says will allow control of the whole martial arts world - the gang will stop at nothing in their pursuit of this power.
