Summary, etc.:
During the Manchurian-ruled Qing Dynasty, Emperor Yong Zheng creates an elite assassination squad known as the Guillotines, made to eliminate all who oppose him. But as time passes, the Guillotines are deemed expendable, and used instead to persecute the people in a reign of terror and oppression. The arrogant and complacent squad of five young warriors have never failed in 348 missions to eliminate their targets. But their newest mission leaves The Guillotines ambushed, double-crossed, and facing annihilation - both from evil men, and the new firearms that seemingly surpass their cold steel. One false move, and they will become the hunted. The Guillotines are facing enemies from both sides, and a showdown is coming.
