Based upon a famous Chinese legend, 'The Assassin's Blade' tells the story of Zhu Yanzhi (Charlene Choi), who chooses to disguise her female identity in order to be accepted into the country’s most prestigious male-only martial arts academy, where she immediately finds herself at odds with her superior, Liang (Chun Wu).

But soon, a stronger connection develops between the two, and as their attraction grows, so does the danger of Liang discovering Zhu’s gender. It’s not until Zhu is required to return home that she reveals her true identity. Could it be that they're destined to be together? As the two lovers dare to voice their feelings, Zhu and Liang learn that her parents have betrothed her to Ma Wencai (Ge Hu). Will the star-crossed couple ever be able to create a life together or are they doomed to a life without love?
