The year was BC221 when Qin Shi Huang - the first emperor of China started to build a royal tomb for himself despite his infatuation with immortality. Through the prodigious endeavours of more than 700,000 forced labourers, the mausoleum was completed 37 years later. Legend has it that, to ensure utmost secrecy, all those who worked on the project were buried alive with the dead emperor. There were no survivors. Over the next two thousand years, historians, tomb-raiders, and happy-go-lucky adventurers alike have been homing on the royal treasure buried within, However, no one has ever succeeded in locating the entrance to the mausoleum. Thus, the bulk of the First Emperor?s treasure, including his much-fabled elixir of youth, remained intact. Intrepid archeologist Jack (Jackie Chan) and ambitious scientist William (Tony Leung Ka Fai) set out on an adventure that would lead them to the greatest discovery in Chinese history. Their journey starts at Desar, India, where they stumble upon an ancient sword from the Qin dynasty and a magical gemstone that appears to be able to defy the force of gravity. The booty not only leads them to the mythical mausoleum, but it also connects Jack to his dark past life. Through strange and provocative dreams, Jack sees himself reincarnated as Meng Yi, a general who fell for the First Emperor?s beautiful consort Ok Soo (Kim Hee Seon) some 2000 years ago. As Meng Yi commands his troops in an increasingly desperate war against rebels, he also has to battle his own inner desires in choosing between eternity love and loyalty, Returning to the present day , the final secret of the First Emperor is about to be revealed. The two adventurers successfully enter the Heavenly Palace, a fortress loaded with death traps and unspeakable evils, as Jack comes face-to-face with his past. Or is it really?
