Synopsis: When the heir of the Imperial throne becomes the target of an assassination by his despised older brother, the young prince must flee the kingdom and seek protection. His only hope for survival is a reluctant war-weary crusader named Jacob, who must overcome his own personal demons and rally the assistance of a mythical outlaw known as The White Ghost. Together they must fight side by side in an epic battle to return the prince to his rightful place on the throne.

Almighty God, in my hour

of need, be with me.

Let me never forget my sacred

and holy vows onto Thee

and I should not be prey onto demons and

devils, and all the dark things of this world.

Honour me with the armor

of Thy righteousness.

Give me the sword of truth,

that I shall confound mine enemies...

...and be onto Thee... the true knight.

They blockade the path!

This way!


Fall back!


- Jacob, we can stop this.

- Stop now, we lose more men.

There is no stopping this [...]

- We can outflank them.

- There are women and children in it.

- They won't be hurt.

- They WILL be hurt.

We end this today!


- Your Highness.

- With Allah's help we may still prevail.

- The time for false hope is over.

There is one final request

I must beg of you, my friend.

Haven't you had enough of this -

killing for hypocrite priests?

- We do God's work.

- The blood we spill here is on our blades.

Our souls, not God's!

We don't have to do this anymore.

We can just go.

- Go where?

- East.

No one goes East.

- Cannot be any worse than here.

- You doubt our cause?

- You're not the man you once were.

- None of us are.

Go there. Go East!

You know, I swore an oath to your father.

My father is dead, you are released

of your oath.

I release you. Go!

- Father.

- Papa!

Hassan will escort you away from here.

I will see you again... very soon.

You have to be strong.

You have to be strong.

For the children, for us.

My love.


Stop, this is finished.


My days draw to an end, my son.

- No, father!

- They do... child.

That is the nature of life.

All that is left for me...

...is to ensure my Kingdom

receives the leader it deserves.

Which is why I have chosen you...

...to sucseed me.

- Me? But... Shing?

- Your brother is a great warrior.

Now it's the time for peace.

That is my request of you.

Father, no one will follow me.

They will...

...because you will be King.

Majesty, Prince Shing approaches the gates.

Our time is less than we thought.

Qiang Long, the royal seal.

Yes, your Majesty.

Qiang Long will escort you...

...ensure that you all safely reaches

the General Sen Ching Wen.

I will protect him with my life.

I have made none of these

decisions lightly.

Which is why... I have chosen you.


Out of necessity, Lian.

A King... tends more to his sons.

But it does not mean... he has any

less love for his daughter.

I trust you... with your brother's life.

With the future of our Kingdom.

Go now.


- It's been a long time.

- Too long, my son.

I came as soon as I heard

of your declining health.

My health has always

been a concern of yours.

I have other concerns, father.

About... rumors I've heard.

Rumors... are the distraction of

children and old women.

Indeed. Unless they are true.

And... what rumor carries...

such weight, my son?

Perhaps we should summon my baby brother

to discuss it?

Unfortunately, your brother

is away from the palace.

I fear your ill health is clouding

your judgment, father.

The throne is my BIRTHRIGHT!!

I earned it, fighting your wars!

Without you... there would be no Kingdom...

...but everything!

I've given everything for you.

I know... my son.

But please...

...it is in the best

interests of the people.

- What... do you know about THE PEOPLE?!

- Prince Shing!

My son means me... no harm.

My father must trust you very much.

You have family? A wife? Children?

Resist me and I will see that your children

are nailed to the walls of your home...

- ...one piece at a time.

- Shing!

That your wife spends the rest of her life
