This breath-taking wartime melodrama is set within the Warring States period – around 475BC to 221BC in China.

Sun Bin and Pang Juan were two of the brightest military specialists of the era – however their friendship growing up dissolves into a fierce rivalry. Pang becomes military leader of the Wei state, but envies Sun’s relationship with their mentor and frames him for treason. After Sun is rescued from execution he flees to the Qi state, where he rises up to lead their army.

Soon their rivalry is tested once and for all when the two armies come up against each other.
