Hungry and poor, an orphan girl makes a wish granted by a powerful sorceress. But the wish comes at a great price: The woman will never enjoy the love of a man until rivers flow uphill, time runs backwards and the dead come back to life. Beautiful, wealthy and beloved by men, the young woman is cursed to live an empty life, dreaming that someday a man she loves will fulfill The Promise. Now a princess adored by her king, Qingcheng (Cecilia Cheung) has fallen in love many times, but each time she has lost her heart to a man, the man dies a terrible death. And when she again captures the heart of a brave young man, this time the slave Kunlun (Dong-kun Jang), Qingcheng dreads the fate she knows will curse the man who loves her. But Kunlun has the power to run faster than the wind. Will his gift and his love be enough to overcome the Sorceress' spell? Can he run fast enough to force the rivers to run uphill, turn time backwards and bring the dead to life?
