Huizhou, Guangdong province, southern China, October 1900. After failing to assassinate the governor-general by blowing up his mansion as part of the anti-Manchu Huizhou Uprising, revolutionary Shi Jianru is captured and executed. Guangzhou, Guangdong province, 1911: following other unsuccessful uprisings, Pan Dawei (Tse Kwan-ho), deputy head of the Guangzhou department of the Tongmenghui (Chinese Revolutionary Alliance), arrives by boat and smuggles weapons past customs officers. During a dinner party at the house of wealthy local trader Fang Hongzhi (Wang Jiancheng), head of the Guangxing business association, there is an assassination attempt on the Manchu Qing government's Marine Minister Li Zhun (Eric Tsang), which fails. Among the guests is Luo Zhonghuo (Zhao Bingrui), just arrived from Penang, Malaysia, who gets to know Fang's daughter, Huiru (Elanne Kwong), also a revolutionary. Afterwards she takes him to the house of painter Gao Jianfu (Liu Kai-chi), head of the Tongmenghui's Guangzhou department. Zhonghuo is carrying a letter from Tongmenghui leader Sun Yat-sen, but neither Jianfu nor Dawei are sure whether he is a spy. To convince them he is genuine, Huiru suggests he tries raising some money for the movement from her father, by first becoming friendly with his cultured longtime mistress Jiang Meixi (Irene Wan). Zhonghuo becomes Meixi's English tutor and helps Fang in getting a local gang off of the Guangxing's turf. As Chinese New Year arrives, Gao and Pan plan a mass suicide attack on the governor-general's residence - in what will become known as the Huanghuagang Uprising of 27 Apr 1911.
