This film is an adaptation of the stories of Hsi Shih, one of the four great beauties in ancient China. During the reign of King Ching of the Chou dynasty, King Fu-chai of Wu invades the Kingdom of Yue. Having been defeated, King Kou-chien of Yue is captured and becomes a prisoner of war in the Kingdom of Wu. As part of his plan to reclaim his kingdom, King Kou-chien entrusts a Yue woman called Hsi Shih with the mission to corrupt King Fu-chai.
King Fu-chai falls obsessively in love with Hsi Shih and does everything just to put a smile on her face. Wu Tzu-hsu, one of the Wu officials, is the only person who not only is suspicious of Hsi Shih but dares to keep reminding King Fu-chai of not neglecting his responsibilities for the state. As Hsi Shih helps King Kou-chien slowly realise his plan for reclaiming his kingdom, the time for King Fu-chai and Hsi Shih to be parted by death will soon come.
