Synopsis
During the Manchurian-ruled Qing Dynasty, the Emperor established a secret assassination squad known as the Guillotines to eliminate all who opposed him. But the Guillotines are deemed expendable when a new Emperor ascends to the throne and adopts Western ideas and technology. However, he continues to use the Guillotines to persecute the conquered Han Chinese in a reign of terror and oppression. They have never failed in 348 missions to eliminate their targets, but their success has made them arrogant and complacent, but on their next mission, they find themselves facing annihilation, and must outfight and outwit enemies from both sides.
