ASHES OF TIME is inspired by
characters from Louis Cha’s novel The
Eagle-Shooting Heroes. It centers on a
man named Ouyang Feng. Since the
woman he loved rejected him, he has
lived in the western desert, hiring skilled
swordsmen to carry out contract killings.
His wounded heart has made him pitiless and cynical, but his encounters with friends, clients and future enemies make him conscious of his solitude...
The flag is still. The wind is calm. It’s the heart of man that is in turmoil!
The story takes place in the jianghu, the world of the martial arts. Ouyang Feng has lived in the western desert for some years. He left his home in White Camel Mountain when the woman he loved chose to marry his elder brother rather than him. Instead of seeking glory, he ends up as an agent. When people come to him with a wish to eliminate someone who has wronged them, he puts them in touch with a swordsman who can do the job.
