The Yang family, men and women, had
served their country (Northern Sung)
loyally for generations. During the war
with Western Xia, General Yang Tsung
Pao is ambushed and killed. His death
leaves his only son, Yang Wen as the
only male heir left to the Yang family.
His widow, Mu Kuei Ying, the grand
matriarch and the entire family set out
to avenge his death and defend the
country. Due to the interference of a
corrupt official, Wang Ching, the Yangs
were unable to have the Emperor’s
consent to use the imperial army.
Thus, they set off with whatever
volunteer troops they could muster.
Knowing of Mu Kuei Ying’s reputation as
a warrior and tactician, the King of
Western Xia and his sons try various
ways to stop her to no avail. They are
outsmarted at the end as Kuei Ying, the
Yang family and Song soldiers
successfully storm their stronghold.
