This story happens in Late Qing Dynasty in Shanghai.
To seek exorbitant profits, Linsa, an English unscrupulous merchant from England, achieves a criminal deal with Fengchu who is a governor-general in the Qing Dynasty government. That is to smuggle opium. Aierdesi is a honest English officer and he tried to prevent them from their criminal conducts but was murdered by Linsa and Fengchu. What was worse, in order to stamp out the source of trouble and avoid his offspring’s revenge, they determine to get rid of his son who is only 10 years old. Fortunately, he was saved by Hong Lianhui (a religion organization in ancient China). They taught him a lot of skills, including the martial art. He grew up together with his good pals like Qian Hua, Tian Ying, Shan Gang etc in a small village.
