In the year 859 AD, China's once flourishing Tang Dynasty is in decline. Unrest is rife throughout the land, and the corrupt government is locked in battle with a series of rebel armies.
The largest and most powerful of these rebel groups is the House of Flying Daggers, which is growing ever more powerful under a mysterious new leader. Two local captains, Leo (Andy Lau Tak Wah) and Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) are ordered to capture the Daggers' new leader and, compelled to comply, they hatch an elaborate plan.
Captain Jin will pretend to be a lone warrior called Wind and rescue the beautiful, blind revolutionary Mei (Zhang Ziyi) from prison, earning her trust and escorting her to the secret headquarters of the House of Flying Daggers. The plan works, but to their surprise, Jin and Mei fall deeply in love on their long journey to the House.
Danger lurks in the forest surrounding them, and the wind is still, as if sensing the tension in the air. What lies ahead for Jin and Mei? If this is true love, then why are there plots in their heads, and secrets in their hearts?
