The Legend of Qin tells the story of the rise and fall of the Qin Dynasty, the first empire of China. During this time, the six kingdoms have been conquered and brought under the auspices of the Qin Empire, which is ruled by the iron fist of Emperor Ying Zheng. Despite this ruthless takeover, pockets of resistance stand opposed to Qin rule and fight for freedom. It is against this backdrop that we meet Tianming, a young boy who is being hunted down by the Qin Empire for reasons beyond his knowledge. Together with his friends, allies, and teachers, Tianming will change the course of history.
