Yu is a young noble man: handsome, brave, admired. Commander of the era's most powerful army, he leads the revolt against the cruel Qin dynasty. Yu recognizes great potential in Liu, a peasant, and gives him command of 5000 soldiers. Liu breaks an agreement with Yu by entering and ransacking the Qin capital alone. The Qin dynasty falls and Yu rules. Wary of treachery, his advisers plot to kill Liu at a great banquet, but the emperor spares his life. From this 'last supper', Liu will wage war against Yu. Xin, an adviser to Yu, joins him. Defeated, Yu commits suicide on the battlefield rather than submit to capture. Yu is dead, but now Xin is a threat. Liu imprisons then releases him, but broods about having spared Xin's life as Yu spared his... Xin too must die. Emperor Liu has finally reached his goal.
