A young war orphan, driven by poverty, makes a promise with an enchantress. In 
return for beauty and admiration of every man, she will be destined to lose 
every man she falls in love with. This spell cannot be broken unless time is 
reversed and the dead come to life. Now a grown and beautiful princess, she is 
in love again with a man behind a red armor and a golden mask who rescues her 
from death, she is tormented by their inevitable parting. Meanwhile, Kunlun, 
the slave of a great general, is searching for the lost memories of a family 
he once had. Soon the fates of these two intertwine when the princess believes 
the general to be her hero, thus pulling him into this web of fate.
