"The Butcher, the Chef and the Swordsman" follows the journey of a mystical blade as it passes through the hands of three ambitious men. As the interwoven story unfolds, they find that the blade possesses the power to dramatically change the fate of each of its owners.

The Butcher is a simple man in love with a beautiful courtesan, but is rebuffed each time he approaches her. The Chef is a handsome loner obsessed with seeking vengeance for the slaughter of his family. The Swordsman, the son of a legendary warrior, is consumed by the desire to eclipse his father in both power and fame.

Their stories comes full circle as each man takes possession of the mystical blade and discovers its double edge—the great power it bestows is matched by even greater danger.

First Cut Studios' "The Butcher, the Chef and the Swordsman" is directed by up-and-coming Chinese director Wuershan from a screenplay by Zhang Jiajia, Tang Que, Ma Luoshan and Wuershan.
