Full Synopsis

Xiao-Hui trains in ninjutsu in Japan, and becomes the first Chinese lady-ninja. She returns to Japanese occupied Shanghai, to discover that her fiancé, Li Tong, has allied with Japan, betraying her and her country. She decides to train a group of female killers to murder Tong.

Abundant plot twists and exuberant ninja tricks, binge fighting, and eroticism abound as the female fighters use perversion to achieve their ends. The Challenge of the Lady Ninja is an expression of pure cinematic excess stemming from a turbulent 1980s Taiwan under martial law.

* The screening of this film is supported by the Taiwan Film and Audiovisual Institute and the Taiwan Cinema Toolkit.
