At the Warring States Period of Early China (475-221 BCE), Both Shin and Hyou Have Been war-orphans in the kingdom of Qin. They desire one day demonstrating themselves in the battle. One afternoon, however, Hyou is brought to the palace with way of a minister. Winding up on the side of a power-struggle, Hyou oversees to go back to the village, barely living. Shin meets a boy who closely resembles Hyou. For now he is the king of Qin. He will become the emperor Shi Huangdi.
