Plot:
During the Manchu-ruled Qing Dynasty, the Yongzheng Emperor established a secret assassination squad known as the ‘Guillotines’ to eliminate all who opposed him. Once heavily favoured by the emperor, the Guillotines are deemed expendable once the Qianlong Emperor ascends to the throne and adopts Western ideas and technology. To consolidate his power under a new regime, the Qianlong Emperor continues to use the Guillotines to persecute the conquered Han Chinese in a reign of terror and oppression.
