Adapted from the novel by Jinyong (aka Louis Cha). This is a sequel to
Legend of Condor Heroes and a prequel of sorts to Heavenly Sword and
Dragon Sabre. The story concerns the adventures of Yang Guo, an orphaned
boy in a mid-13th Century China.
From his humble beginnings, the street wise Yang Guo gets passed around from one prestigious master to another but none of them will teach him any kung fu. While escaping from a tortured experience under Quan Zhen Sect's Zhao Zhi Jing, he meets Xiao Long Nu, the girl who will become his kung fu master and eventually the love of his life.
Unfortunately, even living inside Xiao Long Nu's cave can't prevent the outside world from interfering with their training and blossoming love. Li Mou Chou, Xiao Long Nu's martial sister, returns seeking their sect's greatest skill, The Jade Heart Manual. Li Mou Chou forces the couple out of the cave and into the outside world where Yang Guo learns that the person responsible for his father's death is the leader of the Beggar Clan, his aunt Huang Rong. Huang Rong, besides being a capable martial artist herself, is also pregnant with the child of the preeminent Martial Artist of this time, his uncle Guo Jing. Avenging one's father's murder is the moral imperative of the time but Guo Jing and Huang Rong were also the ones who took in Yang Guo when he was orphaned.
In addition to this complication, Yang Guo and Xiao Long Nu must endure countless trials, near death experiences, the social taboo that prevents a master and her disciple from marrying, and the impending Mongol invasion of China if they are to live happily ever after.
