***BODYGUARDS AND ASSASSINS***
-The Pitch /传奇
1906, city of Victoria(British Colony of Hong Kong) in five hours, in the distance of thirteen blocks, the one man who holds a nation’s fate must survive relentless attempts on his life with only eight bodyguards to protect him. Against hundreds of assassins, these men must put their courage to the test in order to protect the hopes of millions in this perilous night even if it means fighting to the death…
What millions died that Caesar might be great.
Before Dr. Sun Yat-Sen can become the Father of Modern China by instigating the revolution of 1911 that overthrows the Qing Dynasty, his life is almost cut short on the date of October 15, 1906 when he arrives at Hong Kong for a secret meeting to establish a united anti-Qing revolutionary front.
Prior to his arrival, an elite army of assassins have been dispatched by the Qing Court to ensure that Dr. Sun does not leave the British Colony alive, Men with lethal weapons are posted everywhere thirteen blocks along the way from the pier where Dr. Sun is about to land.
Getting wind of the assassination attempt, a newspaper editor and a local tycoon who secretly support the revolution take it upon themselves to protect Dr. Sun at all cost. They recruit a motley group of ordinary men and women who actually posses extraordinary fighting skills to escort Dr. Sun the moment he arrives at the pier.
The Gambler, a gambling addict who is indecisive whether he should support the Qing or the revolutionaries.
The Beggar, an opium addict trying to escape from his past as the prodigal son from a rich family.
The Rickshaw Man, the local tycoon’s chauffeur and bodyguard, a loyal and humble man, hopelessly in love with the daughter of a rich merchant.
The Diva, an opera performer who turns out to be a Wing Chun master and descendant of the Tai Ping revolutionaries.
The Hawker, a tofu vendor and former Shaolin martial arts disciple.
Over the course of five hours within a single day, their friendships, convictions and abilities are sorely tested as they fight selflessly to protect a man they barely know. Although they are ultimately slaughtered one after another by the ruthless assassins, these bodyguards have together fulfilled their mission by saving Dr. Sun’s life. They never consider themselves revolutionaries or even heroes, but the gruesome sacrifices of their anonymous lives have irrevocably changed the course of world history.
