Summary
  The year is 1366. The emperor makes a deal with a neighbouring Manchu emperor, leading to a plot to frame patriotic General Shung in a court martial. Shung believes he will receive a fair trial and goes along willingly. But some of his supporters are not so trusting, and they shadow him on his journey to the palace. Someone later says "I just don't think this is as simple as you make out". How true. The plotting becomes intricate.
