Shadow (Ying)It is a dramatic story of a different kind that speaks of a great king and his people who will be expelled from their homeland and aspire to claim it. This story begins with the king, the violent and ambitious, his general, the visionary who longs to win the final battle, and the women of the palace who struggle to find salvation in a world where they have no place. Maybe each category has a goal but the end looks like one.
