Liu Bei embarks on a journey to quell the chaos that plagues his homeland of China bringing with him his sworn brothers Zhang Fei and Guan Yu. Having only a small army and no land of his own, Liu Bei is forced to to continuously take a subservient role to other Generals in order to keep safe from the those who continually come after his life.
Set in what was to become Imperial China, circa 169 A. D., the story - adapted from the well known historical epic - follows the key characters who would come together to forge a brave new nation out of the flames of chaos and the unrelenting sufferings of the oppressed.
In ancient China, only one law is followed: “every man for himself.” The political system is corrupt and unfair, and war is raging throughout the country. However, one man, Liu Bei, is different; he is a simple mat-weaver who one day discovers that he is in fact one of the possible heirs to the throne of China, and he longs for a change in his homeland. Alongside two fierce warriors, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, Liu Bei sets forth on a journey for change, while strengthening the bonds of friendship and brotherhood with his newfound comrades.
