During the late Ming dynasty, a time when the nation faced enemies externally and within, the young hero Geng Yu Jing discovered that his birth parents’ death was due to a conspiracy which snared the martial world. As he embarked on a journey of self-discovery traveling back to his birthplace at Northeast frontiers of China, he uncovered dark secrets of the past, found warm friendship and romance but also sorrow and enmity. These adventures eventually shaped him to became the legend known as the ‘First Sword of Wudang’.
Credited as the pioneer of modern Wuxia in the 20th century, Liang Yu Sheng wrote Wudang YiJian (First Sword of Wudang) as his final work before retirement. For 35 years, his last masterpiece has never been adapted to screen, until now..
