The Shaolin Temple is the center of Chinese martial arts and the cradle of anti-Manchu patriots in the 17th century. However, a shaolin renegade Shih has defected to the Manchu and is leading a suppression of patriots trying to overthrow the Qing Dynasty. Tan Hung, a patriot, is arrested by Shih and later committed suicide. The Shaolin Abbot thus calls on his best student, Yun Fei to stop Shih from killing more people. Yun happens to find help from another anti-Manchu patriot, Tan Feng who is actually Tan Hung's younger brother. Along with help of Zorro, a master swordsman, the three finally settle the score with Shih.
