Description: In 1895 during the late Qing Dynasty, Wong Fei Hung travels by train to Canton to attend a seminar on Western and traditional Chinese medicine. He is accompanied by his romantic interest "13th Aunt" Siu-Kwan and disciple Leung Foon. He gives a lecture during the seminar on the benefits of acupuncture while a fellow Chinese doctor present there helps him translate for the predominantly Caucasian audience. The seminar is disrupted by members of the fanatical White Lotus Society, an extreme nationalist cult which is led by the sinister and seemingly invincible Priest Kung. The cult aims to drive all foreigners out of Canton and they have been killing foreigners and destroying everything regarded as foreign. Later, Wong learns that his translator friend, by the name of Sun Man, is actually the leader of a group of pro-democratic rebels who wish to establish a republic in China. Sun Man and another fellow rebel named Luke Ho Tung are planning to travel to Hong Kong to continue with their plans for revolution.
