The Plot: Our film begins with a brief lovestory unfurling between Yang Yansi, the sixth of seven sons within the prestigious Yang family, and the lovely Princess Chai. Yansi wants to pursue his love and earn Princess Chai’s hand in marriage via a local martial arts competition. Unfortunately, this contest is a sham, and the winner has already been predetermined. When Yansi’s younger brother steps in during the contest and accidentally kills the man who was SUPPOSED to take Chai as his wife, the entire Yang family is expected to fall. Their father, a powerful politician, is demoted back to a general at the frontlines of the war. This means the senior Yang must head off to the front in a battle with the invading Kithan army. While General Yang is a genius when it comes to warfare, he is unfortunately marched right into a trap, and the majority of his men are slaughtered. Yang is backed into a mountain where he and his men await further support. Unfortunately, that support will not be coming, and the only people he can depend on are his own seven sons who must suit up and head off for battle.
