Summary
  Legend has it that in a faraway place beyond the edge of the earth, there exists a broken-hearted man with infinite power. Abandoned by his loved ones, the inheritance of hte old man's powers becomes a battleground for evil outsiders. [Tai Seng Catalog] There are 3 maidens on the mountain, who never turned old and were not effected by age. They used to be friends but their brother (in student/clan terms) distrusts one or 2 of them, and that's when all 3 kinda started the feud. Of course, two (played by Lin) of the 3 maidens are twins, one evil one good. The other one, played by Gong Li, is madly in love with/obsessed (but not in a lesbian manner) the good maiden of the twins, and wishes to reunite with her, but the brother wouldn't let her. That's basically what was said in the prologue. After that, the evil maiden of the twins' "students" invaded the Shaolin Temple. There a student named Xu Zhu (only character adapted from the series) escapes and befriends with Cheung Man's character, who is kinda ambitious and wacky/slick as in all her characters, who is also a student of the student of the evil maiden (get it?). Anyway together they betrays the evil student of the maid and tricks the maid based on what they were told by the other maiden(Gong Li). Anyway, the supreme brother of the maidens wants to transmit all his power to Xu Zhu, which was not an idea liked by the evil student of the maiden. He kills the brother and vows to destroy everyone and thus becoming the ruler of the mountain. At the end, the good maid of the twin is dead somehow, and both other maidens feel guilty and decide to become allies one more time and together with Cheung Man and Xu Zhu's help, they destroy the evil student.
