Summary
  Ashura (Gloria Yip) is enjoying life on earth and once again causing mischief. She still holds the key to unlocking the gates of hell, and the evil elementals from the netherworld know this. A holy monk gives her seven days to live on earth, after which she will be forever banished to the darkness within a giant Buddha. Yuen Biao and Lucky Fruit are asked to keep an eye on her. Three kung fu nuns are also tracking Ashura. They are ordered to immediately kill her if they sense any demons trying to control her. Deep in the netherworld, the Hell King𠏋 Concubine is indeed plotting to suck the life force out of Ashura, to open the gates between earth and hell. She sends her minions to the earth to do her bidding. Bring her Ashura! [ryanatpoker]
