Phillip Kwok plays the orphaned son of a general disgraced and executed by his political enemies… which has nothing to do with the rest of the movie. Raised to be a righteous martial artist, Yuan kicks off the story proper by finding a cave containing a skeleton, a treasure map, and a manual teaching him the Golden Snake style.  Obeying a request hidden in the manual to give a portion of the treasure to the Golden Snake’s old girlfriend, Yuan begins to seek the woman out - on the way solving the riddle of the Golden Snake, and how he came to his end.

Length 104 minutes
