From the internationally renowned team of director Zhang Yimou and producer Bill Kong (Hero, House of Flying Daggers) comes a grand epic about the folly of war and the disintegration of one family under the weight of unrequited love, unforgivable betrayals, and the never-ending thirst for power.

When the King (Chow Yun Fat) unexpectedly returns home to his Queen (Gong Li) and two sons, he knows immediately that something is rotten in his lavish kingdom.

His absence has given rise to love affairs, dangerous alliances, and malicious conspiracies all of which threaten to overthrow his power.

However, it may well be the King's own dark secret that threatens him most of all....
