You Seng plot

When the old emperor is dying, a battle for succession erupts between two brothers. The Imperial General Shi is a subordinate of one of the two brothers, but deems his own lord incompetent to run the empire. To avoid unnecessary bloodshed, he defects to the other party. His former lord is then murdered. Remorseful for his betrayal, Shi bids farewell to his beloved Princess Scarlet and has to flee from his fellow General Huo. After many wanderings, he finds shelter in a poor monastery. Having already lived through his mother's suicide and Scarlet's murder, Shi decides to become a monk and devote himself to meditation, but his past continues to haunt him. Death appears to him in the guise of Scarlet, and General Huo has not yet given up his pursuit of Shi.
