Call of Heroes

In the aftermath of the collapse of the Qing dynasty, the north of China is torn apart by the armies of rival warlords. One such despot, Cao Ying, storms Stone City with his private militia, which proceeds to rape and pillage. School teacher Bai Ling (Zhang Shuying) and her young charges flee in terror to the neighbouring city of Pucheng, where they seek shelter at the noodle shop run by her cousin Tieniu (Philip Keung). Alas, Pucheng's sheriff Yang Kenan (Sean Lau Ching-wan) and his small group of lawmakers are no match for the might of Cao Ying. They cannot hope to protect the citizens. Regardless, Yang pledges to fend off the onslaught for as long as possible and he is aided by a few brave souls including a drifter called Ma Feng (Eddie Peng).
